Abstract: AbstractTemporal properties associated with the speech signal are potentially important for understanding spoken language. Five hours of spontaneous American English dialogue material (from the SWITCHBOARD corpus) were hand-labeled and segmented at the phonetic-segment level; a fortyfive-minute subset was also manually annotated (at the syllabic level) with respect to stress accent.
