This work summarizes our project to propose a set of automatic tools for analyzing the phonetic and phonological content of spoken Hebrew. The goal of the project is to provide a set of resources to scientists and engineers who work on research and engineering problems related to the acoustics and linguistics of the modern Hebrew language. The set of tools includes: (i) a transcribed corpus of Modern Hebrew; (ii) a phonetic classifier; (iii) a forced aligner, and (iv) an automatic procedure for converting dotted (vowelized) orthographic transcription into phonemic transcription. This tool along with the forced aligner can be used to automatically align words and their phonemes to the speech signal. We are not familiar with any such publicly available corpus or tools for the Hebrew language.
