Manipuri is the Administrative Language of Manipur. The development of LDC-IL Speech Data for Manipuri lies in capturing all the distinctive characteristics of speeches shared by different regional dialects of Manipur. In order to do so, certain linguistic features identifying regional tones and intonations, phonemic distributions, various pronunciations reflected in both regional and non-regional vocabulary items such as person names and place names etc., have been well housed based on a standard parameter of the dataset. Out of the entire dataset, each specific subset to be read by the corresponding speaker is randomly generated for a read speech corpus’. In this way, each random set is read by a speaker. Limited Full Sets are made read completely by assured selected speakers in each age group. The data is collected from three regional dialects, namely Imphal, Kakching, and Awang Sekmai respectively through fieldwork.

The age group ranges selected for fieldwork are ‘16 to 20’, ‘21 to 50’, and ‘above 50 years’ respectively. Equal number of male and female data is collected from each age group.
