I'm trying to do adaptive student modeling in a language
learning context, and there are too many biphones for
quick adaptation, at least in the raw TIMIT corpus. I want
to map down to the fewer phonemes of the ARPABET or the IPA;
hav you or anyone that you know of been working on that?
I will summarize replies made directly to me to both of
these mailing lists to help cut down on traffic.
P.S. There is more information on TIMIT at
and on the phonetic codes at
