Hawaiian-English and English-Hawaiian dictionaries.
A group that I've started to get involved with since moving to O‘ahu. The group is open to anyone who is interested (faculty, students, community members).
This video (shown on YouTube in three parts) was made by a team of students at Wai‘anae High School (with support from Da Pidgin Coup).
Freeware I use and love:
Great for transcribing interviews. It time aligns the text with the sound file, and large-scale corpora can then be searched using ONZE Miner.
This was a tool developed by researchers here at the University of Canterbury to help make life easier for those of us working with spoken corpora. It can search a corpus based on a number of different criteria, from phonemes and words to corpus or CELEX-based word frequency. Like most tools on this page, it’s continually being developed, so check back often.
A tool that allows you to conduct all kinds of statistical tests on your data.
For acoustic phonetic analysis.
Like Praat, this is a tool for acoustic phonetic analysis. It has the added benefit of being able to hand-correct formant traces. Additionally, there’s an R-script (emuR) that allows you to automatically extract values for easy analysis. For my thesis work, I marked textgrids in Praat and converted them to Emu files.
Some other things I want to share:
It's impossible to pick my favourite place in New Zealand, but the Abel Tasman trail would definitely be right near the top.
Although I have moved on to taking other forms of dance, I still dream in ballet. (And colour!)
One of my best friends and probably my favourite female vocalist.
Thankfully, there are a growing number of websites and shops where it's possible to source eco-friendly and fair trade goods at reasonable prices.
Coming together to make a difference. Contact my good friend, Sean, for more info: infoATgardensofgratitude.com
One of my favourite places to visit in San Francisco.
Jesse is a friend of mine from high school. His story is one worth hearing.
