-===== Speech sound collection ===== 
-It would be useful to have recordings of the most important regional, social and foreign accents of the following languages which are in great demand for teaching-learning: English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish, besides: Greek, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Arabic, (Mandarin) Chinese, Japanese, Hindi... but others will be appreciated as well. They may concern either broad regional or marked social accents of native speakers, on the one hand, and broad immigrants or marked foreign accents, on the other hand. Larger nations will naturally have several interesting accents. 
-I will be happy to receive any proposals. The recordings could be included on this website and made downloadable (see the **[[en:Italian_sound_files|Italian Sound Files]]** section) by permission of the collectors. 
-In this way, my sound collection could profitably be enriched to allow fuller descriptions (see **[[en:Italian_sound_files|here]]**). 
-Interested people could collect not only the typical accent of their mother tongue, but others as well, and not only for their mother tongue. Coordinated planning, however, is mandatory. If you’re interested, please write to __**[[|]]**__ (my other mailbox __****__ has been discontinued). 
-Also, it would be interesting to identify the most numerous immigrant communities in the nations where the following languages are spoken: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish (but, again, others could be included) in order to describe their accents. 
-===== Pronunciation studies ===== 
-I’d like to encourage all those people with a bent for language sounds to engage in the preparation of studies/publications on pronunciation: **dictionaries**, **handbooks**, **essays**, **sketches**. At least one native speaker is needed who has a thorough knowledge of phonetics and phonemics (or is willing to acquire it) and knows what to include. If necessary, I could cooperate. The sketches and essays, as well as extracts from the dictionaries and handbooks (at least during their preparation), could be shown in the **[[en:pdf|PDF]]** Files section of this website. 
-The **dictionaries** are to give many (first, family, and place) names and all the inflected forms of common words that can cause pronunciation doubts either to foreigners or native speakers. For a list of model pronouncing dictionaries, see here. 
-<sub>Among the most needed are those for Arabic, (Mandarin) Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Vietnamese.</sub> 
-The **handbooks** could be similar to Canepari (**[[en:bibliography|Manuale di pronuncia italiana]]**), which deals extensively with the pronunciation of neutral (or standard) Italian and of its 22 regional variants. After **[[en:bibliography|English PronunciationS]]** / **[[en:bibliography|The Pronunciation of English around the World]]**, four more monographs have been planned about (neutral, mediatic, international, regional and foreign accents of Spanish, French, Portuguese, and German. 
-Other much needed handbooks could be on: Arabic, (Mandarin) Chinese, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Persian, Russian, Turkish, Vietnamese. 
-Examples of **essays/papers** are those on the 12 languages given in Canepari (**[[en:bibliography|Manuale di pronuncia]]**) and (**[[en:bibliography|A Handbook of Pronunciation]]**): Arabic, (Mandarin) Chinese, English, Esperanto, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish. 
-<sub>Other useful essays could be on: Burmese, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Hausa, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Korean, Dutch, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Turkish, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Swahili, Swedish, Vietnamese, Wolof.</sub> 
-Examples of **sketches**, or **phonosyntheses** can be seen in the second part of Canepari (**[[en:bibliography|Fonetica e tonetica naturali]]**) and (**[[en:bibliography|Natural Phonetics & Tonetics]]**), in some chapters of Canepari (**[[en:bibliography|Manuale di pronuncia]]**) and (**[[en:bibliography|A Handbook of Pronunciation]]**), as well as **[[en:pdf|here]]** on this site. They are arrived at by working with recordings after seeing the most useful descriptions available on the language in question. They necessarily include one or more //vowel diagrams//, a //consonant table//, the four basic //intonation diagrams// of //<sup>can</sup>IPA Natural Phonetics//, and a short presentation of the main phonetic/phonological features. They vary in length from a few lines to three pages; generally, though, the figures provided ‹speak for themselves›.
