EUSTACE: Edinburgh University Speech Timing Archive and Corpus of English
The EUSTACE corpus comprises 4608 spoken sentences designed to examine a number of durational effects in speech.
Project DetailsEUSTACE is the Edinburgh University Speech Timing Archive and Corpus of English. The EUSTACE corpus comprises 4608 spoken sentences recorded at the department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics of Edinburgh University. These sentences, spoken by six speakers of British English, were designed to examine a number of durational effects in speech and are controlled for length and phonetic content. Subconstituents of key words in each sentence have been identified by labels in xlabel (ESPS) format and notes have been made about the prosodic realisation of the sentences. It is hoped that these recordings will be useful for phonetics researchers and speech technologists working on synthesis and recognition.
