Erlangen-CLP: A Large Annotated Corpus of Speech from Children with Cleft Lip and Palate.

  • In this paper we describe Erlangen-CLP, a large speech database of children with Cleft Lip and Palate. More than 800 German children with CLP (most of them between 4 and 18 years old) and 380 age matched control speakers spoke the semi-standardized PLAKSS test that consists of words with all German phonemes in different positions. So far 250 CLP speakers were manually transcribed, 120 of these were analyzed by a speech therapist and 27 of them by four additional therapists. The tharapists marked 6 different processes/criteria like pharyngeal backing and hypernasality which typically occur in speech of people with CLP. We present detailed statistics about the the marked processes and the inter-rater agreement.
