Cucchiarini, C. TNO Defensie en Veiligheid Publication year 2007 Abstract Providing feedback on pronunciation errors in computer assisted language learning systems requires that pronunciation errors be detected automatically. In the present study we compare four types of classifiers that can be used for this purpose: two acoustic-phonetic classifiers (one of which employs linear-discriminant analysis (LDA)), a classifier based on cepstral coefficients in combination with LDA, and one based on confidence measures (the so-called Goodness Of Pronunciation scores). The best results were obtained for the two LDA classifiers which produced accuracy levels of about 85-93%.
