Les systèmes vocaliques des dialectes de l'anglais britannique
Emmanuel Ferragne, François Pellegrino.
This paper is an attempt to characterize the vowel systems of the dialects of British English. We carried out a (semi-) automatic dialect identification procedure using [hVd] words. Our second aim was to examine to what extent the procedure allowed the description of vowel systems. The method yields approximately 90% correct identification, and we show that it is not sensitive to gender differences, and may therefore be used for the description of vowel systems.
