Abstract

Sound is the pressure wave created by an object vibrating with a certain frequency. 3 organs are needed for the formation of voice in humans. These are lungs, vocal cords and mouth. Due to the structure of these organs and the similarity of the person with their current language, they can speak another language with different accent. A language can be spoken in different parts of the same country and in different countries. The second most widely used language in the world is English, has numerous accents around the world. In this study, it is aimed to determine which country the English accent spoken in different regions belongs to. In the dataset used, there are 330 sound samples including English accents spoken in Spain, France, Germany, Italy, England and America. Classification has been made with 12 features obtained by Mel Frequency Cepstrum Coefficients feature extraction method. k-Nearest Neighbor (kNN) were used in the classification and 87.2% success was achieved.
