These are the raw data files (in WAV format) for English and Spanish speakers as recorded and analyzed for the article "Sound level protrusions as physical correlates of sonority," published in Journal of Phonetics 36:55-90 (2008).


Steps to reproduce

The English speakers were recorded in 2005 in Ukarumpa, Papua New Guinea, with a Roland VS-880EX digital studio workstation. The Spanish speakers were recorded in 2005 in Lima, Peru, with a Roland ED UA-30 USB audio interface. All recordings were digitized at a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz. The WAV files were then manually segmented and analyzed with version 4.3.17 of Praat, with all of its default settings.
