Dynamic Dialects contains an articulatory video-based corpus of speech samples from world-wide accents of English. Videos in this corpus contain synchronised audio, ultrasound-tongue-imaging video and video of the moving lips.
We are continuing to augment the database.
The website contains three main resources:
1. A clickable Accent Map: clicking on points of the map will open up links to ultrasound tongue videos showing a comparable set of words and a spontaneous speech excerpt for speakers of world-wide Englishes.
2. A clickable Accent Chart: this provides ultrasound tongue and lip video for a comparable set of words and a spontaneous speech excerpt for speakers of world-wide Englishes. You can filter by accent, gender, and agerange.
3. An introduction to UTI and lip video recording techniques.
For modelled International Phonetic Association (IPA) speech samples produced by trained phoneticians, which also includes Magnetic Resonance Imaging and 2‑D Animations as well as Ultrasound Tongue Imaging and lip video, please visit our sister website, Seeing Speech.
Die Datenbank ist entstanden aus der Zusammenarbeit von sechs schottischen Universitäten: University of Glasgow, Queen Margaret University Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, University of Strathclyde, University of Edinburgh und University of Aberdeen.
