EUROM1 - Multilingual Speech Corpus
The EUROM1 database contains recordings of 60 speakers in each of seven European Languages: Danish, Dutch, British English, French, German, Norwegian and Swedish. It was explicitly designed to aid the phonetic comparison of languages, with similar materials and recording protocols in all languages.
The EUROM1 corpus was collected by the "Enabling Technology and Research" working group within ESPRIT-project 2589 "Speech Assessment Methodology". A compatible Italian database and compatible databases in Eastern European languages are available from the European Language Resources Association.
