High-quality speech and sound recording within the Sinophone Borderlands Project is supported by its Phonetics Laboratory & Studio. Its main purpose is to facilitate recording of high-quality speech for phonetic analysis and high quality narratives, conversation, poetry, songs, other oral art production or music for documentary purpose. The laboratory is equipped to serve this purpose both in the laboratory site as well as in the field conditions. The laboratory consists of a large room with inbuilt sound-proof recording booth. The main room holds the storage capacity for the equipment and the recording controls. The main room holds also a computer and back-up utility.
The laboratory has a double function, serving both as a research and as a training facility. It is available to all Dialogue Units and upon agreement also to the students of linguistics and other departments working on speech.
