What we have: The Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (NECTE: http://research.ncl.ac.uk/necte/)
NECTE is an AHRC-funded corpus of dialect speech from Tyneside.
It is based on two existing corpora, one from the 1960s and the other from 1994.
It amalgamates the legacy corpora into a single TEI-conformant XML-encoded corpus and makes them available in a variety of formats: digitized audio, standard orthographic transcription, phonetic transcription, and part-of-speech tagged, all time-aligned.
2. What we’re developing: The Diachronic Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (DECTE: http://research.ncl.ac.uk/decte/)
DECTE, also AHRC-funded, updates and extends NECTE.
It will incorporate about 100 additional interviews from 2007-current.
It also incorporates thematic mark-up and associated graphical material.
The aim is to make DECTE usable by the general public, the cultural industries, and by all levels of the education sector from primary to higher.
