Abstract The current study describes the collection of a new phonemically-balanced Spanish sentence resource, known as the Sharvard Corpus. Design: The resource contains 700 sentences inspired by the original English Harvard sentences along with speech recordings from a male and female native Spanish talker. Sentences each contain 5 keywords for scoring and are placed into lists of 10 using an automatic phoneme-balancing procedure. Study Sample: 23 native Spanish listeners identified keywords in the Sharvard sentences in speech-shaped noise. Results: Psychometric functions for the Sharvard sentences indicate mean Speech Reception Thresholds of -6.07 and -6.24 dB, and slopes of 10.5 and 11.0 percentage points per dB at the 50 % keywords correct point for male and female talkers respectively. Conclusions: The resulting open source collection of Spanish sentence material for speech perception testing is available online.
