Nonsense syllable speech materials are often used when investigating speech perception in quiet and under adverse conditions. The main advantage of using nonsense syllables over words and sentences is that the acoustic as well as linguistic context is minimal. This paper describes the considerations involved in producing three anechoic recordings of 14 male and 14 female native talkers of Danish each speaking 65 nonsense syllables repeated three times with falling F0 (total of 16380 syllables).
