A procedure for synthesizing British English has been developed which incorporates certain economies at little apparent cost in intelligibility, and introduces some rules for allophones which improve quality. Tests are reported with intelligibility around 90 percent, and improvements suggested for the major sources of errors. The assumptions in the procedure for synthesizing speech by rule both summarize and suggest research on fundamental aspects cf speech, and thus constitute a model for some aspects of speech production and speech perception.
