The Speaker in Speech is an NWO VIDI project (2017-2022) hosted by the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics. This project investigates the relationship between speaker information and linguistic information in the acoustic speech signal. Project goals are to further our understanding of how speakers show variation within their own speech and how they differ from others, as conditioned by linguistic structure, and to thus advance the state of the art in forensic speech science. The main research questions are (i) how does the speaker specificity of speech sounds (i.e. indexical information) depend on linguistically-determined aspects of the spoken message, and (ii) how can speech features be optimally combined to characterize speakers. The research project benefits from a close cooperation with the Netherlands Forensic Institute.
