    General Voigt profiles (GVPs), including the speed dependence of collisional cross-sections, have been fitted to the following measured spectral lineshapes: the shapes of the R(7), R(11) and R(14) lines recorded with a tunable diode-laser spectrometer in the v band of CH in collision with He and Kr. The various GVPs and the resulting broadening coefficients are almost identical for light pertubers such as He and depend significantly on a simplified form in r of the interaction potential for heavy pertubers such as Kr. We consider three GVPs with q = 3 (Voigt function), q = 6 and q = 12, as well as the Galatry profile incorporating Dicke narrowing associated with velocity-changing collisions. The speed-dependent Voigt profile with q = 6 provides generally closer agreement with the spectral data of CH-Kr than the other GVPs and leads to Kr-broadening coefficients that are nearly 5% larger than those derived from the conventional Voigt profile.
