SPADE features in two presentations: Age vectors vs. axes of intraspeaker variation for North American and Scottish English vowel formants and Dialectal and social factors affect the phonetic bases of English /s/-retraction given at the New Ways of Analyzing Variation 47 (NWAV47) conference held at New York University, USA, 18th-21st October 2018.
The ISCAN software being developed for the SPADE project was presented in a workshop at NWAV 2018. In addition to a talk (slides: iscan-nwav-2018), participants worked through a detailed tutorial demo’ing ISCAN’s current functionality for analyses of duration, vowels, and sibilants.
The SPADE project is the key focus of the talk Developing tools for data sharing: Polyglot + ISCAN (Integrated Speech Corpus ANalysis) given at the WYRED project Data Sharing Event held on 2nd August at the University of Huddersfield. This was a satellite event of the 27th Annual Conference of the International Association for Forensic Phonetics and Acoustics (IAFPA).
