Persian is one of the Indo-European languages which has borrowed its script from Arabic, a member of Semitic language family. Since Persian and Arabic scripts are so similar, problems arise when we want to process an electronic text. In this paper, some of the common problems faced experimentally in developing a corpus for Persian are discussed. The sources(More)
This paper addresses some of the issues learned during the course of building a written language resource (called 'Peykare') for contemporary Persian. After defining five linguistic varieties and 24 different registers based on these linguistic varieties, we collected the texts for Peykare to do a linguistic analysis, including cross-register differences.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of an intensive 10-week course of articulation therapy on articulation errors in cleft lip and palate patients who have Velopharyngeal Insufficiency (VPI), non-oral and passive cleft speech characteristics. METHODS Five children with cleft palate (+/-cleft lip) with VPI and non-oral and passive(More)
Persian clitic groups differ from words. Most importantly, a pitch accent (L+)H* is associated with the word-final (i.e. base-final) syllable of clitic groups, but with the word-final syllable of words, meaning that clitics remain outside the domain of the word. The pitch accent marks the stress, but we found no independent durational or spectral(More)
F2 transition parameters including F2 onset and offset frequency and locus equations have been studied for Persian affricates /ʤ, ʧ and homorganic dental plosives /d, t/ and post alveolar fricatives /ʒ, ʃ/. The F2 offset frequencies hierarchy is follow: post alveolar fricatives> affricates> dental plosives. This parameter makes a significant difference(More)
