Illustrating the production of the International Phonetic Alphabet sounds using fast real-time magnetic resonance imaging. Interspeech, San Francisco, CA.|
This paper introduces an on-line rtMRI speech production data resource of a large subset of the sounds of the world’s languages as encoded in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), with supplementary English words and phonetically-balanced texts, produced by four prominent phoneticians. The technique images the entirety of the vocal tract in the production of each sound category. This resource is envisioned as a teaching tool in pronunciation training, second language acquisition, and speech therapy.
