A Course in Phonetics
This site is an adaptation of the CD that came with
Peter Ladefoged's book "A Course in Phonetics". The
online version includes some new interactive
exercises. The audio and other media files are stored
on Amazon Web Services (thanks to the invaluable
Ronald Sprouse) greatly increasing the responsiveness
of the site around the world.
This site is a workbook for phonetics students. It
builds on the interactive exercises that were added to
the "Course", with exercises for a wider range of
phonetics teaching. In addition, the site is
distributed on github and a small python script
can be used to create a custom versions of the site,
which include only the exercises that the instructor
wants for their course, in a custom
Voices of Berkeley
The "Voices of Berkeley" project was a component of
Berkeley's "On The Same Page" program, an intellectual
introduction to Berkeley in which incoming freshman
and transfer students are invited to engage with a
research area found on the campus. In 2011, the topic
was language, and one part of the program was to
listen to each other's voices. Students used their
browsers to record a few utterances which were force
aligned, formant tracked and the student's vowel space
was presented in real-time. Their recordings were
also added to the class map so they could listen to
each other. Extra special shout-out to Ronald Sprouse
for helping to make this web project happen.
