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. Ani Patel -- Aniruddh D.
