       *   Emotional Prosody Speech and Transcripts   *

The Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) is pleased to announce the
availability of the Emotional Prosody Speech and Transcripts corpus.
This five disc publication contains audio recordings and corresponding
transcripts designed to support research in emotional prosody. The
recordings consist of professional actors reading a series of
semantically neutral utterances (dates and numbers) spanning fourteen
distinct emotional categories.

The Prosody Recordings Project aims to capture the aspects of speech
(emotion, intonation) that are lacking in the written form of a
message. In these experiments, simple phrases are expressed in ways
that reflect varied contexts. The same phrase might be used to answer
different questions, address listeners at varying distances from the
speaker, or express distinct emotional states.

For further information, including a sample transcript and a link to
the Prosody Recordings Project, please visit:


Institutions that have membership in the LDC during the 2002

Nonmembers may purchase this publication for $1500.
