From: Dimitris Papazachariou <>
Subject: Q: Fundamental frequency software

Dear colleagues,

I would be grateful if you could provide me any information about
software that analyses human speech and show the fundamental
frequency of it.

In particular, I am looking for software that would analyse recorded
speech (recorded in real conditions and not in laboratory ones) and
show the fundamental frequency of an utterance, with the ability to
describe the exact pitch of each vowel -or voiced consonant-, as
well as its loudness. I believe that a parallel representation of the
waveform would help a lot, in order in order for me to determine the
exact pitch of a vowel and its relative loudness.

I was working with SoundWaves software, but I will not have access
to that software any more. Moreover, since I have seen much more
sophisticated representations of F0 in last recent journals and
periodicals, I am looking for something faster and more detailed
than SoundWaves.

I would like to know the types of software that exist either for IBM
compatible PCs, or for MAC, or even for UNIX. Please tell me also
the kind of hardware that is necessary for each software, and
where I could find or buy this gear.

I would really appreciate any information that you would sent me,
and I promise to summarise it and distribute it through the linguist

Thank you in advance

Dimitris Papazachariou.

Message 2: software for propositional analysis

Subject: software for propositional analysis

Hi! I need to find a software to do propositional analysis to analyze
large students' writing for my study. As far as I know, theoretically many
differnet analysis frames have been suggested. Especially, I am interested
in Kintsch's model. If you happen to know any of this kind software, please
let me know. If not, why don't we make this kind of software for research
and teaching purpose? Thanks in advance.

I would like to know of sources for Bengali software. A Bengali
script word processor would be great, and/or language learning
materials. Sources for print materials would also be welcome,
linguistics or learning oriented. Will sumarize. Thank You.
