A Data-Processing System for Quantitative Analysis in Speech Production. CLCS Occasional Paper No. 17.
Chasaide, Ailbhe Ni; Davis, Eugene
The data processing system used at Trinity College's Centre for Language and Communication Studies (Ireland) enables computer-automated collection and analysis of phonetic data and has many advantages for research on speech production. The system allows accurate handling of large quantities of data, eliminates many of the limitations of manual data analysis, and opens new areas of research. Possible exploitations and extensions of the current capabilities to enhance phonetic research include accurate measurement of respiratory regularities underlying stressed syllables, manipulation of signals to study aerodynamic aspects of phonation and the velocity of glottal movement, and precise synchronization of physiological, aerodynamic, and acoustic information.
