Introduction

Levantine Arabic QT Training Data Set 5, Transcripts, was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortuim (LDC) and contains transcripts for approximately 250 hours (1,660 calls) of Arabic Levantine telephone conversation collected between 2003 and 2005. The corresponding speech files may be found in Levantine Arabic QT Training Data Set 5, Speech (LDC2006S29).

This corpus is the combination of four former training data sets: LDC2004E21 and LDC2004E22, LDC2004E65 and LDC2004E66, Arabic CTS Levantine Fisher Training Data Set 3, Speech (LDC2005S07) and Arabic CTS Levantine Fisher Training Data Set 3, Transcripts (LDC2005T03), and Levantine Arabic QT Training Data Set 4 (Speech + Transcripts) (LDC2005S14). More than half of the speakers are Lebanese, the others are Jordanian, Palestinian, and Syrian. The table below shows the distribution of the speakers' national origin:
