Hello everyone,

Thank you for you rapid reply! What I am also wondering about, is if it would be able to use this programme and its formant tracking features to differentiate between "right" and "wrong" pronunciations of Dutch teachers of English... What I would like to do is this: compare the values and general patterns of the pronunciation of certain words by Native speakers to that of the teachers, using statistical analysis programmes such as SPSS. Would that enable me and the CPU to say who speaks RP and who does not? I know about the segmentation difficulty CPUs tend to have, but I am going to try to get round it by putting sentence stress markers in the text they are to read. That way the computer will hopefully be able to deduct the info on what word he's dealing with.

Thanks in advance,

Most work I've heard about uses automatic speech recognition for similar tasks. Might be worth a try though. Choose vowels that the formant tracker gets right. You might want to check out http://www.speech.kth.se/snack/ for another way to get your formants. More a programmer's approach (and also the way it's done inside WaveSurfer).
