Abstract [en]

This article describes the CALST project, in which the primary aim is to develop Ville-N, a CAPT system for learners of Norwegian as a second language. Since there is no accepted pronunciation standard in Norwegian, the system uses four dialects (represented by one male and one female speaker each). Ville-N makes use of L1-L2map, a tool for multi-lingual contrastive analysis, to generate a list of expected pronunciation problems. These can be used to tailor pronunciation and listening exercises. The tool can also be used for other target languages. We propose L1-L2map as a collaborative tool for the CAPT community. Index Terms. CAPT, Ville-N, Norwegian, dialects, multi-lingual contrastive analysis, L1-L2map
