Abstract
This paper considers suprasegmental parameters such as intonation, stress and speech rhythm. Correct articulation of sounds and correct pronunciation in the target language depend on prosodic structures presented by standard intonation patterns. Linguistic and acoustic resources provide the basis for computer-aided intonation training in and outside the classroom. There is a great need for new and innovative computer-aided programs. But there is no necessary software available for such teaching system and, therefore, such system appears to be of great relevance. Presented work describes as well the algorithm of designing of the computer-based system for analysis and interpretation of speech intonation.
