Phonemes of Arabic was developed at the Florida Institute of Technology. It consists of approximately one hour of speech from native Arabic speakers that includes all Arabic sounds (consonants and vowels) and 24 words with specific consonant-vowel patterns.
Arabic has three short vowels, three long vowels and 28 consonants. Speakers recorded all sounds and repeated each sound three times. Each speaker also recorded 24 Arabic words with a specified consonant-vowel pattern and repeated each word three times.
Recordings were collected over a three month period at a cultural center in Florida. The speakers (19 male) were from the following countries: Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Syria.
Speech data is presented as single channel, 48 kHz, 32-bit Singed Integer PCM wav files.
