Subjective and objective evaluation of the prosody of English spoken by French speakers: the contribution of computer assisted learning

Nadine Herry, Daniel Hirst

This paper describes preliminary results from an ongoing project on the subjective and objective evaluation of the prosody of English spoken by French speakers making use of a system of computer-assisted learning for prosody. The system was tested for 6 months and data was analysed with two objectives: on the one hand the subjective evaluation of the prosody of English spoken by French speakers in order to determine the system’s efficiency; on the other hand an objective evaluation attempting to establish a correlation between the level of a French speaker and a number of automatically extracted prosodic parameters. Although the critical statistical interactions we sought did not reach the level of significance, a number of effects suggest that both aspects of the project merit further investigation.
