This paper details the present state of a research programme aimed at
setting up a multi-media acoustic-articulatory data base. The research is
being carried out jointly as part of an 'acoustic-phonetic decoding'
operation within the 'Speech Communication' section of the GRECO by two
We will be describing the various processes used to establish a relation
between the two sets of data and presenting the initial results of this
- the CERFIA, where homogeneous infra-phonemic segments are isolated by
means of a pre-segmentation of the speech signal.
<öi>The Institute of Phonetics at Aix-en-Provence, where the movements of the
velum, the lateral walls of the pharynx and the lips during phonation are
measured on pictures from video films.
