Message 1: Query 17.2096 Tone Realisation in Yoruba

Subject: Query 17.2096 Tone Realisation in Yoruba


I wish to express my gratitude to the following for responding: 
Mark Jones
Fay Wouk
Yi Xu
Tunde Awogbola
'Yiwola Awoyale (who passed on Prof. William Poser's suggestion)

The majority opinion is that ''Praat'' is the ''industry standard'' (see
Mark Jones's comments below). Yi Xu, however, has supplementary information
at the following addresses:

(i)www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/home/yi/downloads.html

(ii)Some helpful tips can be found at the FAQ page: http://
www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/home/yi/FAQ1.html

Mark Jones's assessment of some of the existing tools is as follows:

**Praat is freeware available from www.praat.org and is becoming the
''industry standard'' but is far from easy to use initially. Very good if
you wish to run scripts and automated analysis. If not, maybe you should
look elsewhere.

**Wavesurfer can be downloaded free from
http://www.speech.kth.se/wavesurfer/, a department of the Royal Institute
of Technology in Stockholm. Much easier to use initially, but in some ways
less flexible, than Praat.

**SpeechAnalyzer is freeware from SIL at
http://www.sil.org/computing/speechtools/. It's a very big file, but easier
to use than Praat. Some nice features.

**Wasp is free from the Dept. of Linguistics and Phonetics at University
College London. It's very basic, but it may be all you need:
