Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: ELRA - Language Resources Catalogue - Update
Submitter: Helene Mazo
Description: ELRA is happy to announce that 2 new Speech Resources are now available in
its catalogue:

ELRA-S0292 Danish EUROM1 (EUROM1_D)
EUROM1 is the first really multilingual speech database produced in Europe.
Over 60 speakers per language pronounced numbers, sentences, isolated words
using close talking microphone.
For more information, see:

ELRA-S0293 The HIWIRE database, a noisy and non-native English speech
corpus for cockpit communication The database contains 8,099 English
utterances pronounced by non-native speakers (31 French, 20 Greek, 20
Italian, and 10 Spanish speakers). The collected utterances correspond to
human input in a command and control aeronautics application. The data was
recorded in studio with a close-talking microphone and real noise recorded
in an airplane cockpit was artificially added to the data. The signals are
provided in clean (studio recordings with close talking microphone), low,
mid and high noise conditions. The three noise levels correspond
approximately to signal-to-noise ratios of 10dB, 5dB and -5 dB respectively.
