Unlike the lists you've seen before, this one consists of actually meaningful words and phrases selected from a small subset of public-domain books from Project Gutenberg, yet it is different from CMU Arctic (which is also based on Gutenberg) in that the new Arpasing script is designed for singing synthesis. You can take a glimpse at the first few lines, was Matthew's consolatory rejoinder he stood before the wide opening we shall begin our researches here with his usual craving on him but this little line of dancing men Theoretically, this new script can match the current 220-line script performance-wise, using its first 65 lines only (though the total number of syllables remains roughly the same); on the top of that, the rest 135 lines should double the coherency. But speech synthesis is all about experiments. Before rushing into the recording studio, I'd like to focus on improving the ease of pronunciation by taking out phrases that are hard to read even to native speakers. To keep the selection as unbiased as possible, I kindly request users of Arpasing and people with an interest in the matter to review and comment on the draft: Google Spreadsheet Thanks for your support! TL;DR Please add 1 to rows you think are hard to read, and use the Google Sheets comment feature to leave any additional feedback. Please do not vandalize the spreadsheet.
