The Audio-Aligned and Parsed Corpus of Appalachian English is an in-progress project. The ultimate product will be 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
