This dataset forms the basis of the paper "Three-level vowel length in Shilluk" authored by Remijsen, Ayoker, & Jørgensen which has been provisionally accepted for publication in Phonology. Apart from the primary data, the dataset includes various datatypes produced in the course of acoustic processing and analysis (TextGrid, Pitch, PitchTier, and Formant objects). The composition of the dataset is explained in the readme document.


The primary data in this dataset are audio recordings (wav format). They are utterances in the Shilluk language (Nilo-Saharan, South Sudan), recorded from 8 speakers, collected through controlled elicitation. The data were collected in order to investigate the phonological contrast between short, long, and overlong vowels in Shilluk.
