Voice onset time (VOT) is an acoustic property of speech that is able to reveal a lot of information about a speaker’s linguistic experience(s). Analyzing VOT helps us in (a) developing linguistic theories of language representation and (b) assessing a language learner’s approximation to phonetic norms in the target language.
In this online presentation, Ernesto Gutiérrez Topete will present a computational tool (a Python program) that can be used to analyze a speaker’s VOT productions for the purposes of linguistic research or instructional student support. This presentation will cover installation and usage instructions and will provide a live demonstration of how to use the tool. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the presentation.
The presentation is part of the Programming Essentials for Studies in Human Language & Technology series at the Center for Language & Technology.
