You may need to get the Quicktime plug-in to play the sound clips. Each individual sample page contains a sound control bar, a set of the answers to 7 demographic questions, a phonetic transcription of the sample,1 a set of the speaker's phonological generalizations, a link to a map showing the speaker's place of birth, and a link to the Ethnologue language database. The archive also contains a set of native language phonetic inventories so that you can perform some contrastive analyses. If a particular sample does not have a phonetic transcription nor a generalizations page, please be patient—all samples will eventually be complete.

To hear each sample, just click on the pause/play button of the sound control bar. To learn more about the phonological generalizations, click on this generalization definitions page. To see a pop-up window of a map of the speaker's place of birth, click on map. The archive is continually growing. Livemocha. The language learning community. UCLA Language Materials Project: Main.
