rPraat package for R

rPraat package for R constitutes an interface between the most popular software for phonetic analyses, Praat, and R.

Version 1.2.0-3.

For demonstration, see html/rDemo.html

Package documentation https://github.com/bbTomas/rPraat/blob/master/rPraat.pdf

CRAN link: https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=rPraat

See also: mPraat toolbox for Matlab.

rPraat and mPraat homepage: https://fu.ff.cuni.cz/praat/

Installation

One-time installation (internet connection needed).

CRAN: official version

install.packages("rPraat")

GitHub: experimental, most recent version

install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("bbTomas/rPraat")

Initialize and Test

At each R session, you have to initialize the package (no internet needed).

library(rPraat)
library(dplyr)   # optional, if you want to use the pipeline operator %>%

tg.sample() %>% tg.plot()  # demo test

How to cite this package?

We have invested a lot of time and effort in creating mPraat toolbox / rPraat package, please cite it when using it for data analysis.

What is new

v1.2.0-3 (2019/04/27): if “UTF-8” encoding is specified in .read() functions (i.e., default value) and input file cannot be read properly, then “auto” encoding is tried automatically with a warning message notification

v1.2.0-2 (2019/04/01): “UTF-16” TextGrids are properly saved in “UTF-8”

v1.2.0-1 (2019/03/16): detectEncoding(): removed “UTF-16LE” (does not work anymore), tg.read(fileName, encoding = “auto”) works again

v1.2.0 (2018/12/08): pitch.write(), formant.write(), col.write()

v1.1.4 (2018/12/08): pitch.cut(), formant.cut(), snd.cut(); pitch.cut0(), formant.cut0(), snd.cut0()

v1.1.3-4 (2018/12/03): snd.read(), snd.write(), snd.plot(), as.snd(); tg.plot() can plot TextGrid together with Sound object; it.plot() can plot IntensityTier together with Sound object

v1.1.3-3 (2018/12/03): formant.toFrame(), pitch.toArray(), pitch.toFrame(), pitch.plot(); tg.plot() can plot TextGrid together with Pitch object; pitch.plot() can plot Pitch object together with PitchTier

v1.1.3-2 (2018/10/29): formant.plot(), formant.toArray(); tg.plot() can plot TextGrid together with Formant object

v1.1.3-1 (2018/10/26): tg.plot() can plot TextGrid together with PitchTier and IntensityTier in one plot

v1.1.3 (2018/10/20): formant.read(), formant.sample(), as.formant(); col.read() can read formant objects

v1.1.2-1 (2018/10/20): tg.plot(): right-aligned labels; pitch.sample(), as.tg(), as.pt(), as.it(), as.pitch(); .read(), .sample() and tg.createNewTextGrid(): class(object)[“type”] set to “TextGrid”, “PitchTier” etc. and class(object)[“name”] set according to fileName

v1.1.2 (2018/08/04): tg.cut(), tg.cut0()

v1.1.1 (2018/08/02): IntensityTiers: it.read(), it.write(), it.plot(), it.sample(), it.interpolate(), it.cut(), it.cut0(), it.legendre(), it.legendreDemo(), it.legendreSynth(), col.read() supports IntensityTiers

v1.1.0 (2018/08/01): col.read() to read Collection in Text and Short-text format (Collection may store many objects in one file – TextGrids, PitchTiers, Pitch objects). Big thanks to Pol van Rijn for initiating this and making the major portion of the new code in mPraat toolbox. Supports for file encodings in all read functions (thanks to Weirong Chen for his DetectEncoding idea in mPraat toolbox).

v1.0.8-3 (2017/11/27): tg.write(): fix for possible UTF-8 encoding and Windows OS locale mismatch

v1.0.8-2 (2017/11/04): tg.write() and pt.write() format support: “text” (full text format), “short” (short text format), and in addition for pt: “spreadsheet” and “headerless”; tg.read(), pt.read() and pitch.read(): optional file encoding parameter (default: “UTF-8”)

v1.0.8-1 (2017/09/01): bugfix, short-text TextGrid with multiple lines in a label no longer produces “missing sppasFormat variable” error

v1.0.8 (2017/07/16): pitch.read() to read Pitch-object files with time frames of pitch candidates

v1.0.7 (2017/04/19): tg.findLabels(), tg.duplicateTierMergeSegments()

v1.0.6 (2017/04/11): pt.cut(), pt.cut0()

v1.0.5 (2017/04/10): pt.legendre(), pt.legendreSynth(), pt.legendreDemo()

v1.0.4 (2017/03/06): pt.interpolate(), pt.Hz2ST()
