The present volume brings together multiple research perspectives to bear on the question of what constitutes best practices for the construction of spoken corpora. The book brings into closer contact scholars whose specializations have often remained in relatively different streams of scientific investigation; that is, scholars whose work falls primarily in conversation analysis, pragmatics and discourse analysis, but who are involved in spoken corpus compilation, on the one hand, and scholars who also specialize in linguistics but who have been intensively involved in developing various infrastructures for spoken corpora, on the other hand. This combination of scholars brings into better relief the concerns of data providers, data curators and data users in linguistic research.
This book is thus unique in that it highlights best practices from both the perspective of assembling, annotating and linguistic analysis of spoken corpora, as well as from the perspective of processing, archiving and disseminating spoken language. In doing so, the contributions emphasise not only the considerable promise that the rapid technological changes that society continues to experience in this area offer, but also possible dangers for the unwary.
Michael Haugh is an Associate Professor in Linguistics and International English at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia. His main research interests are in pragmatics and conversation analysis. He has taken a leading role in the establishment of the Australian National Corpus (www.ausnc.org.au), as well as in creating the Griffith Corpus of Spoken Australian English.
Thomas Schmidt is Head of the Archive of Spoken German at the Institute for the German Language in Mannheim. His main research interests are in text and corpus technology. He is one of the developers of the EXMARaLDA system (www.exmaralda.org), and is currently in charge of building up the Research and Teaching Corpus of Spoken German (Forschungs- und Lehrkorpus Gesprochenes Deutsch, FOLK).
Kai Wörner is currently coordinating all activities related to the curation and archiving of research data at the Faculty of Humanities of the Universität Hamburg. He is also a developer of the EXMARaLDA system and member of the Hamburg Centre for Language Corpora (www.corpora.uni-hamburg.de).
