Lahajet is a game with a purpose (GWAP) for crowdsourcing classifications of different varieties of Dialectal Arabic in multi-dialectal audio. Players listen to short audio clips and select a character representing the dialect they have heard. Character movement, point rewards, and obstacles are implemented to ensure player engagement and interest. Lahajet tracks multiple player submissions to obtain multiple judgments for each audio file, while utilizing a single-player implementation that allows players to participate even in the absence of additional online players. Classifications gathered from the GWAP contribute to the building of a multi-dialectal speech corpus of Dialectal Arabic.
Lahajet game is available only in the Arabic language.
Lahajet game is developed by: Waed Hakouz, Abdurrahman Ghanem, Samantha Wray & Ahmed Ali.
