UCLA Sounds of the World's Languages
The UCLA Sounds of the World's Languages are available for Macintosh
users (no DOS based system currently available). The sounds are stored
in a Hypercard database developed at the UCLA Phonetics Laboratory.
The aim is to illustrate and teach about the range of
sounds used in human languages with material on more than 80
languages. The set demonstrates particular highlights of the sound
systems focusing especially on rarer sounds that students may not
otherwise have a chance to hear from a native speaker. The
recordings are based on the archives of recordings collected at
UCLA, with additional contributions from outside collaborators.
All the languages can be accessed from the list of language
names, or by clicking on the language name in a set of maps.
Support for part of this work was provided by NSF. The database
currently includes examples of languages from Agul and Akan to Zulu.
15 DSDD disks, requiring about 35 meg of disk space when expanded.
Available for $50 individual $100 institutions. Prepayment in US
dollars (checks or international money orders payable to "UC Regents")
must accompany all orders.
