Description: Recordings of 90 monosyllabic words beginning with non-coronal fricatives (/x/, /f/) produced approximately ten times each by ten (five female) native speakers of the Zhongjiang dialect of Chinese, a total of 8,991 wav files; Praat textgrids for 8,991 of the wav files, produced by forced alignment; Praat textgrids for 100 files produced by hand segmentation, based on visual inspection of the waveform; a list of the recorded syllables. The syllable list contains a unique syllable number for each item, which corresponds to the wav and textgrid files, as well as the Chinese Character (sinograph), pinyin (standard Romanized orthography for Chinese), and expected pronunciation represented in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Data were collected in Zhongjiang City to evaluate patterns of non-coronal fricative merger in this dialect of Southwest Mandarin. A detailed report of the findings is available in Rao & Shaw (submitted, a); the phonetic measurements of the fricatives extracted from the raw data are published as Rao, Shaw, & Dockum (submitted b).
