- Research in language identification require corpus of multi-languages speech data to capture the distinguishable information within and across languages. In the past few decades, many statistical approaches to language identification have been developed based on two common and public-domain corpora which consist of telephone speech from about 26 languages and dialects. However, the China's minority languages have not been used as the target languages in the published papers up to now. In our work, we select 9 typical China’s minority languages and Mandarin to construct our telephone speech corpus. These minority languages are composed of Naxi, Miao, Bai, Dai, Yi, Zhuang, Uygur language, Mongolian and Tibetan. Each minority language represents its minority nationality. The corpus can be used to study, develop, evaluate and compare minority languages identification algorithms. Moreover, it will promote the Linguistic researchers to pay more attention to the long history and splendid culture of our national minorities.
