Dynamic dialects

Dynamic dialects | TELT | Scoop.it

Dynamic Dialects is the product of a collaboration between researchers at the University of Glasgow, Queen Margaret University Edinburgh, University College London and Napier University, Edinburgh. Dynamic Dialects is an accent database, containing 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 this resource. For modelled International Phonetic Association speech samples produced by trained phoneticians, please go to Seeing Speech.

Task-based mini-games for language learning

Shona Whyte:

If you're interested in gamification in language teaching and learning, see these slides for a presentation on "Challenges in specifying and evaluating a conceptual design for a task-based mini-game environment for language learning" at last week's EuroCALL 2012 conference in Gothenburg by Frederik Cornillie, Andrew Grenfell, Scott Windeatt, Piet Desmet.
