Mike (and anyone else interested), We can offer the ProPOSEC dataset ("ProPOSEC: A Prosody and PoS Spoken English Corpus" by Claire Brierley and Eric Atwell, LREC 2010). This open source material has already been donated to the Aix-MARSEC project led by Professor Daniel Hirst at the University of Aix, France. ProPOSEC uses the following files from Section A of the Lancaster-IBM Spoken English Corpus of BBC radio broadcast transcripts: A01, A03, A04, A05, A06, A07, A08, A09, A10, A11. The order of fields for each entry is as follows: File ID word LOB C5 SAMPA (transcription from Aix-Marsec) SAMPA (transcription from ProPOSEL) Syllable count Lexical stress pattern Content/function word status DISC phonetic transcription DISC transcription mapped to syllable weightings Prototype phone-TSM mapping from Aix-Marsec I hope this helps Eric Atwell (pp Claire Brierley), Leeds University On Fri, 22 Apr 2011, Mike Rosner wrote: > > Dear All, > > > > I have a student who is doing some comparative work on formal vs > > informal speech and need to get my hands on an annotated read-out > > speech corpus at low or zero cost. > > > > If anyone can help with that please get in touch. > > > > Many thanks > > > > Mike > > -- > > Michael Rosner > > Dept Intelligent Computer Systems > > University of Malta, MSD2080, MALTA > > mike.rosner_(at)_um.edu.mt, www.cs.um.edu.mt/~mros > > +356 2340 2519 Eric Atwell, Senior Lecturer, Language research group, I-AIBS Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Biological Systems School of Computing, Faculty of Engineering, UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS Leeds LS2 9JT, England.
