The Audio-Aligned and Parsed Corpus of Appalachian English is a 1-million word corpus of Appalachian English, with two basic components:

  • Transcripts which are time-aligned with the speech signal, and fully text-searchable
  • A part-of-speech tagged and parsed version of the transcripts which are searchable online using structural queries
Please explore the links above for further information on this project. THE CORPUS WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC IN 2017; PLEASE CONTACT CHRISTINA TORTORA FOR UPDATES.
