Résumé

Vu la nécessité d’accroître les connaissances sur l’effet de l’âge, sur la production de la parole et vu le manque de données concernant la parole en portugais européen (PE), ce travail analyse le développement d’une base de données sur la parole, avec des données acoustiques d’adultes en bonne santé à l’aide d’un enregistrement et des procédures standardisés. Cette base de données permet une analyse complète des effets de l’âge et du sexe dans le discours PE aux niveaux phonématique et suprasegmental. 

Dans cette perspective, le présent travail décrit une base de données de parole acoustique contenant toutes les voyelles du PE produites dans un contexte similaire (discours de lecture), ainsi qu’en parole semi-spontanée (description d’image) collectée, à partir d’un large échantillon de 144 adultes de la région centrale du Portugal, âgés de 35 à 97 ans. Cet article présente le design de la recherche de la base de données acoustique ainsi que les données sur la région d’étude, les participants, les tâches des participants, le corpus, l’acquisition de données et la segmentation/annotation des données. 

Cette base de données a été utilisée dans différentes études, où divers aspects de la parole vieillissante ont été explorés au moyen de différentes méthodes, comme les caractéristiques acoustiques statiques et les formants dynamiques des voyelles. Les données recueillies pourraient cependant être également utilisées dans d’autres études acoustiques sur le développement de la parole tout au long de la vie.
