dc.description.abstract Afrikaans is one of the eleven official languages of South Africa. It is classified as an under-resourced language. No annotated broadband speech corpora currently exist for Afrikaans. This article reports on the development of speech resources for Afrikaans, specifically a broadband speech corpus and an extended pronunciation dictionary. Baseline results for an ASR system that was built using these resources are also presented. In addition, the article suggests different strategies to exploit the close relationship between Afrikaans and Dutch for the purposes of technology development. en_US
