speech-timing database

Dear List,

I just put a speech database on the web which might interest some of you
or your students (http://www.nsi.edu/users/patel).

The database contains acoustic and kinematic data (collected at Harvard
University and Haskins Laboratories) from speakers who were uttering
sequences of alternating syllables in an evenly-timed fashion, "like a
metronome". Since the syllables were perceptually isochronous, the
database can be used to study physical correlates that underlie the
perception of temporal intervals in speech. A paper containing the
details of one such study is included on the download page. The paper
also contains details of data collection for all materials on this
website, as well as a method for the analyzing these data for proposed
timing cues.
