Our earlier work [1] on speech synthesis has shown that syllables can produce reasonably natural quality speech. Nevertheless, audible artifacts are present due to discontinuities in pitch, energy, and formant trajectories at the joining point of the units. In this paper, we present some minimal signal modification techniques for reducing these artifacts.
