Abstract

In this paper, we propose a lyrics writing support system focused on the number of syllables, rhyme and word accent. The system generates candidate sentences that satisfy user-specified conditions based on N-gram, and presents them. Users can use the system like a dictionary, and write lyrics be choosing presented sentences. In our subjective evaluations, we have investigated how the system is utilized for writing lyrics actually. The log of using the system and the questionnaires showed that users want the system to present words suitable for their images, and they used the presented words as keywords of a lyrics rather than as they are.
