In this paper, we describe the work on Chinese multi-dialect speech processing. Based on the phonetic analysis of ten Chinese dialects, we have created a Chinese super phonetic system for the Chinese speech recognition. To exam this phonetic system and develop Chinese dialect speech technology, we are building a multi-dialect speech corpus, which includes 10 dialect areas and 2000 speakers.
