Resources and Tools for Automated Speech Segmentation of the African Language Naija (Nigerian Pidgin)

Abstract

The development of HLT tools inevitably involves the need for language resources. However, only a handful number of languages possesses such resources. This paper presents the development of HLT tools for the African language Naija (Nigerian Pidgin), spoken in Nigeria. Particularly, this paper is focusing on developing language resources for a tokenizer, an automatic speech system for predicting the pronunciation of the words and their segmentation.
