E-mail this message to a friend

In order to construct a wider data set on a series of papers dealing with
the Germanic foot, vowel systems and output constraints in a hybrid
GP/OT model of Northwest Germanic languages, I am seeking native
speakers of a number of language/dialects who are able to make a
sound file of a word list, pronouned in citation form. The recording
need not be of the highest quality (fine-grained phonetic analysis is not
needed). I am thus looking for decent quality recordings from native
speakers of the following languages/dialects:
Afrikaans
Zeelandic
Flemish
Limburgish
Luxembourgish
Frisian
Low German (Plattdeutsch, Low Saxon).

If you would be able to make a recording, please contact me either at
sterntheogmail.com or theodore.sternumontreal.ca. I can then
send you the directions along with the word list, as long with the other
necessary information (permissions, langauge background information,
etc.).

Thank you, and I hope to hear from some of you soon!
