In order to construct a wider data set on a series of papers dealing withthe Germanic foot, vowel systems and output constraints in a hybridGP/OT model of Northwest Germanic languages, I am seeking nativespeakers of a number of language/dialects who are able to make asound file of a word list, pronouned in citation form. The recordingneed not be of the highest quality (fine-grained phonetic analysis is notneeded). I am thus looking for decent quality recordings from nativespeakers of the following languages/dialects:AfrikaansZeelandicFlemishLimburgishLuxembourgishFrisianLow German (Plattdeutsch, Low Saxon).

If you would be able to make a recording, please contact me either I can thensend you the directions along with the word list, as long with the othernecessary information (permissions, langauge background information,etc.).

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