There is a significant need for more comprehensive electromagnetic articulography (EMA) datasets that can provide matched acoustics and articulatory kinematic data with good spatial and temporal resolution. The Marquette University Electromagnetic Articulography Mandarin Accented English (EMA-MAE) corpus provides kinematic and acoustic data from 40 gender(More)
This paper investigates the extent of tiger (Panthera tigris) vocal individuality through both qualitative and quantitative approaches using long distance roars from six individual tigers at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, NE. The framework for comparison across individuals includes statistical and discriminant function analysis across whole vocalization(More)
This paper introduces a new method to calibrate data collected using ElectroMagnetic Articulography (EMA) into an appropriate articulatory space. A bite plate record for a target subject is used to define the maxillary occlusal and midsagittal planes, and then a single quaternion rotation is derived to transform the dataset into the new anatomically(More)
Nowadays phone recognition followed by support vector machine (PR-SVM) has been proposed in language recognition tasks and shown encouraging results. However, it still suffers from the problems such as the curse of dimensionality led by the increasing order of the N-gram feature supervector, the fast increasing number of possible parameters because of fast(More)
There has been an upsurge of green reductants for the preparation of graphene materials taking consideration of human health and the environment in recent years. In this paper, reduced graphene oxides (RGOs) were prepared by chemical reduction of graphene oxide (GO) with three green reductants, L-ascorbic acid (L-AA), D-glucose (D-GLC) and tea polyphenol(More)
The selection of effective articulatory features is an important component of tasks such as acoustic-to-articulator inversion and articulatory synthesis. Although it is common to use direct articulatory sensor measurements as feature variables, this approach fails to incorporate important physiological information such as palate height and shape and thus is(More)
