Recent studies have indicated that language identity is encapsulated in a more complicated manner to that represented by short term acoustic features. In particular, trajectory information over syllable-like durations have shown significant promise. This study introduces a novel three-tiered language identification approach which incorporates this information as well as acoustic context in the form of broad syllabic events. Experimental results using the CallFriend database demonstrate the effectiveness of these systems at providing complementary information to a GMM based system.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
