Re: VCV nonsense syllable corpus

Hi Narayan,

in case it might be useful, back in 2007 I prepared a small dataset of nonsense syllabling recordings in the context of scat singing. 

It contains a total of 72 recordings consisting of 4 short melodic phrases by 4 male individuals, where each phrase was recorded at two speed (slow/fast) with 2 or 3 repetitions for each. Annotations provide VCV information in the format described in the ReadMe file.

Jordi Janer

Hi all,
I’m looking for help in finding a corpus of VCV nonsense syllables. I’m examining the cortical representation of consonants (using EEG) and want capture some invariance to acoustic variability. More so than presenting multiple talkers, I am looking for multiple repeat utterances of the same VCV within the same talker (not only different vowel contexts, but the exact VCV uttered at different rates and with as much variability in prosodic features as possible). Does anyone on this list knows of such a corpus? Many thanks in advance.
