We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

hi everybody,
 
 i am working on a final thesis paper which investigates the foreign accent
 of twenty 18 year old swiss german speakers when speaking english. i am
 currently using PRAAT to analyze formant values. in order to find out the
 acccent i need to compare my data of the vowels & consonants of these 20
 subjects with formant values of a standard american englisch and/or RP
 english. does anyone know how i can obtain these values and if they
 actually exist?
 
 thanks for you help & best regards from switzerland,
