    save a Textgrid Among the most obvious advantages of working with PRAAT are the following you can listen and transcribe simultaneously the text is aligned with the corresponding audio sequence you can listen to the sequence you transcribe as many times as you wish and for portions as short as you like you can locate any given sequence in the text from single words to sentences you can move easily within the speech signal by zooming in and out of the sequence you can directly extract sounds from the passage transcribed And if you wish to do more advanced tasks you can also extract labelled segments e g all segments labelled voiceless stop and perform a number of sophisticated phonetic and acoustic measurements including durational spectrographic intensity formant and pitch analyses TRANSPRAAT Transpraat a program developed by A Meqqori for the French PFC project converts the coded text files or textgrids created with PRAAT into normal text files that you can edit format and print with your customary word processing tool such as Microsoft Word Note however that the document will no longer be linked to the original audio signal and PRAAT textgrid Thus all eventual corrections or modifications in the transcription should be done and recorded in the original textgrid in PRAAT In a PRAAT textgrid the transcriptions appear within PRAAT specific codes as illustrated in the following 34 second sequence from a conversation below In this raw textgrid format the codes link each interval to the original sound file intervals 10 xmin 1177 5648270086172 xmax 1181 1347845804989 text F And how did you find Afghanistan I mean the country intervals 11 xmin 1181 1347845804989 xmax 1191 169782935204 text RM Er it s it s er yeah it was quite a nice place er XX smelly in some places the XX particularly er it s very run down and er intervals 12 xmin 1191 169782935204 xmax 1196 0005442176871 text RM stammering most of the places like the the mountains or the farmers and stuff they re intervals 13 xmin 1196 0005442176871 xmax 1202 334784580499 text RM they re generally quite friendly but er very very poor it s like er stuck in er the Middle Ages I think intervals 14 xmin 1202 334784580499 xmax 1211 4604081632654 text RM But er yeah it was not bad XX not bad Very rocky the mountains some of the the mountains we were up were p particularly high The same sequence can be seen below converted by Transpraat there are no codes and speaking turns are automatically adjusted F And how did you find Afghanistan I mean the country RM Er it s it s er yeah it was quite a nice place er XX smelly in some places the XX particularly er it s very run down and er stammering most of the places like the the mountains or the farmers and stuff they re they re generally quite friendly but er very very poor it s like er stuck in er

    Jacques Durand Toulouse II Bernard Laks Paris X and Chantal Lyche Oslo Tromsø for more information see Durand Laks Lyche 2002 and the internet site http www projet pfc net The methodology is inspired by the classical work of Labov in that for each selection of speakers it involves the reading of a word list and a passage as well as formal and informal conversation cf section 2 But in each area surveyed the speakers usually groups between 10 and 20 informants are selected on a network principle well known in the United Kingdom particularly from the work of the Milroys and their associates see Milroy 1980 In the initial phase of the project we favour geographical variation that is the recording and analysis of cohorts of speakers from as many different locations as possible in the English speaking world Within each location however we require that the groups include an equal number of men and women and well defined age ranges e g 70 40 20 Social diversity is less easy to achieve with small groups of speakers and it has been found profitable to study family networks which allow for better comparison of age grading especially when the social world of the informants has remained stable In terms of linguistic study the recordings obviously lend themselves to various types of exploitation including syntax and pragmatics However all participants in the project commit themselves to studying three areas 1 Phonological inventories oppositions and main variants 2 Rhoticity Is the accent rhotic non rhotic Does it have r intrusion How is r phonetically realized in different positions etc 3 T D How is the contrast between t and d phonetically realized in different contexts Is it ever neutralized Is there a process of tapping etc Beyond these questions researchers will

    read In our experience informants seem to prefer to read through the lists without any pauses but you can have a short break between the two lists The reading over the informants often want to make comments on our selection of words This should be encouraged and recorded as it is a useful source of information on speakers attitudes and appreciation of features of their phonological systems During the recording of the lists always have your own copy in order to follow the reader and note any omission misreading misinterpretation etc At the end of the list ask the speaker to read any words which have been missed out or misinterpreted The same applies to unexpected noises or other interruptions in the course of the reading Text The text to be recorded entitled Christmas interview of a television evangelist is a two page passage originally based on a newspaper article but substantially modified to hide its source and include a number of phonological phenomena worth investigating Before recording ask informants to take a few minutes to read the text to themselves This gives them a chance to run through the text and know what it is about and thus be more at ease and perform better for the recording Never put this task to someone without checking that they will be reasonably comfortable with reading aloud The speaker s copy of the text should be printed in a reader friendly layout with clearly spaced lines and at least 14 sized fonts Also make sure that lines do not break at crucial points e g where linking intrusive r s may be possible and that pages end at appropriate points e g end of a sentence or a paragraph Formal conversation The formal interview involves the fieldworker and the informant It
