Prosodic transcription of glasgow english: an evaluation study of GlaToBI
MetadataShow full item record
GlaToBI, a version of the ToBI prosodic transcription system which can be used to transcribe the intonation patterns of western Scottish (Glasgow) English, is currently under development. An assessment of GlaToBI, similar to the evaluation studies that were undertaken for the original ToBI system , and for GToBI, a version developed for German , has been carried out to test the new system’s reliability, learnability and comprehensiveness. The results of this study show that this adaptation of the ToBI system can be applied with the expected level of reliability to the transcription of Glasgow English.
