Comparing dialect and accented pronunciations on the basis of transcriptions and articulography: Martijn Wieling, PhD
In the first part of the presentation, I will introduce the Pointwise-Mutual-Information-based Levenshtein distance which is able to determine sensitive pronunciation distances and sound segment distances on the basis of transcribed speech (Wieling et al., 2012). I will then apply the PMI-based Levenshtein distance to transcriptions of accented English speech obtained from the Speech Accent Archive(http://accent.gmu.edu) and validate the method by comparing the computational distances to perceptual judgments of hundreds of native American English speakers (Wieling et al., in press).
