Greetings,

Recently I queried this list for advice on software packages capable of 
analyzing sung speech at phonetic and phonological levels, especially those 
that can provide accurate pitch tracking. I'd like to summarize the 
results of this query to the list in case they may be useful to others.

Praat was most commonly recommended:

http://www.praat.org
http://fonsg3.hum.uva.nl/praat
http://www.fon.hum.uva.nl/praat/praat5133.html

Several respondents also recommended Speech Analyzer from SIL:
http://www.sil.org
http://www.sil.org/anthro/ethnomusicology.htm
http://www.sil.org/computing/speechtools/softdev2/SpeechTools2/SATdownloads2.htm

For several links to phonetic analysis software, see

The Department of Speech and Music Acoustics at the Royal Institute of 
Technology in Stockholm has developed the Swell and Soundswell packages; 
see http://www.hitech.se/

Custom software may be available from LingCom, a company specializing in 
speech recognition: http://www.lingcom.de

Many thanks to all who responded!
Best regards,
Michael
