Data for: Intonational structure mediates speech rate normalization in the perception of segmental categories
Contributors: Jeremy Steffman
... These files are example stimuli, shown in Figure 1 in the article. They all contain target sounds with 45 milliseconds VOT, corresponding to a "pa" response. The name of the file contains the intonation condition (flat, LH) and the duration condition (short, long), as discussed in the article.

... this source code proposes a dynamic parameterization approach to the ant colony optimization algorithm configuration applied to multi-objective optimization problems. Indeed, the inertia of the static vision of the pheromone or visibility preferences values makes our dynamic approach a desired approach. We propose a model based on a collective knowledge center shared by the colony members, storing the best configurations based on the old experiments of the colony during the learning phase on random problems. The construction of this center is based on a statistical and qualitative study of the evaluation criteria that will be explained over the paper. Our model gives results that show a rise in quality of the outputs, as well as a proof of concept of the artificial learning approach.

... The S-transform (ST) is a popular linear time-frequency (TF) transform with hybrid characteristics from the short-time Fourier transform (STFT) and the wavelet transform. It enables a multi-resolution TF analysis and returns globally referenced local phase information, but its expensive computational requirements often overshadow its other desirable features. In this paper, we develop a fully discrete ST (DST) with a controllable TF sampling scheme based on a filter-bank interpretation. The presented DST splits the analyzed signal into subband channels whose bandwidths increase progressively in a fully controllable manner, providing a frequency resolution that can be varied and made as high as required, which is a desirable property for processing oscillatory signals lacked by previously presented DSTs. Thanks to its flexible sampling scheme, the behavior of the developed transform in the TF domain can be adjusted easily; with specific parameter settings, for example, it samples the TF domain dyadically, while by choosing different settings, it may act as a STFT. The spectral partitioning is performed through asymmetric raised-cosine windows whose collective amplitude is unitary over the signal spectrum to ensure that the transform is easily and exactly invertible. The proposed DST retains all the appealing properties of the original ST, representing a local image of the Fourier transform; it requires low computational complexity and returns a modest number of TF coefficients. To confirm its effectiveness, the developed transform is utilized for different applications using real-world and synthetic signals.

... Audio data comprising naturally-occurring spoken discourse in support of paper on future expression in Gã. Due largely to the overwhelming frequency of the temporal function in the discourse data, I maintain that the primary function of bàá- is as a tense marker and not a modal, as has been suggested by Dakubu (2008). I show that àá- is now reserved primarily for coding epistemic modality. Gã is therefore unique among Kwa languages, which have been said to be tenseless. This study uncovers previously unreported non-temporal uses of bàá- and clarifies the situation regarding the semantic differences between the two markers. Reference Dakubu, Mary Esther Kropp 2008.

... Labeled dataset of frog calls recorded at Yasuní National Park using directional and omni-directional microphones. We trained a Bayesian classifier with Gaussian Mixture Models and applied it to study the audio in Unidentified Long Recordings. The results of the analysis are in the related article. We showed that the application of a frog-call recognition algorithm allows the estimation of presence-absence of the trained subset of species in real-world recordings of an actual amphibian monitoring made in the wild.
