Three SPADE project papers were given as oral presentations at the 2019 International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS 2019) held from 5th-9th August 2019 in the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia:
The SPADE project: large-scale analysis of a spoken language across space and time was presented at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique, École Normale Superieure, Paris (March 2019), the Glasgow University Laboratory of Phonetics, Glasgow University (May 2019), the Language Variation and Change Group, University of Edinburgh (July 2019) and the Language Science Center, University of Maryland (Sep 2019).
ISCAN and Polyglot: software for integrated storage and phonetic analyses of speech datasets was presented in April 2019 at the Cognitive Machine Learning Group, École Normale Superieure, Paris.
SPADE features in the poster The fate of the Scottish Vowel Length Rule in contemporary Scottish English presented at the 5th Workshop on Sound Change held at the University of California, Davis, June 21-23 2019.
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).
SPADE is a key feature in two poster presentations Age vectors vs. axes of intraspeaker variation for vowel formants in North American and Scottish English and Dialectal and social factors affect the phonetic bases of English /s/-retraction given at the 16th Conference on Laboratory Phonology (LabPhon16) held at the Faculdade de Letras, Universidade de Lisboa, Lisboa, Portugal, 19th-22nd June 2018.
SPADE is a key feature of the presentation Cross-dialectal variation in /s/-retraction in English given at the British Association of Academic Phoneticians (BAAP) Colloquium held at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK, 12th-14th April 2018.
Digging into speech corpora: Introducing SPADE, a new initiative for mining spoken datasets on a large scale is the keynote presentation at the Corpus Linguistics in Scotland event Corpus linguistics and cross-disciplinarity in Glasgow.
SPADE is mentioned in the presentation Sociophonetic trends in studies of Southern English at the 174th meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in New Orleans.
