An important characteristic of speaker profiling is the dialectal accent feature which could ultimately establish the speaker’s identity through his dialect. This feature also depends on educational background, mother tongue of the person, and the regional language. In fact, nonnative language is always influenced by the native language. Extracting information like sex, age, dialect background, and regional info underlies in the category of speaker profiling. Here, in this case study, Hindi, which is the official language of India, is chosen because of its various popular dialects. Khariboli, which is one of the chosen dialects, is considered as base language for comparison purposes because of its close approximation to standard Hindi. Moreover, it is the dialect that forms the basis of the modern standard Hindi.
