The aim of the study is to learn the relationship between facial movements and the acoustics of speech sounds. We recorded A database of 3D video of the face, including markers, and corresponding synchronized audio of a single speaker. The database consists of 110 English sentences. These sentences were selected for strong expressive content in the fundamental emotions: Anger, Surprise, Sadness, Happiness, Fear and Disgust. Comparisons are made with the same sentences with neutral expression. Principal component analysis of the marker movements was performed to identify significant modes of variation. The results of this analysis show that there are various characteristic difference between visual features of emotional versus neutral speech. The findings of the current research provide a basis for generating realistic animations of emotional speech for applications such as computer games and films.
