Notice: I am a student at Western Washington University and I am working with the UCLA phonetics database. There is a long string of numbers in the language file and I am not sure what they are. I've tried to get in contact with someone from UCLA but have had no luck.I am wondering if there is a correlation between those numbers and any other information provided in the database. I am using the information and just creating a new user front end to it. Any help or referral to someone that could help would be great. Thank you!
