FYI: VOICE POS and Update to Version 2.0

Author: Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English (VOICE)

Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics

Subject Language(s): English

FYI Body: The Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English (VOICE)

We are delighted to announce further developments of the VOICE Corpus. The following new versions are now available:

- VOICE POS Online 2.0
- VOICE 2.0 Online

VOICE POS Online 2.0 and VOICE POS XML 2.0 are the first part-of-speech tagged and lemmatized versions of VOICE. VOICE is thus the first publicly accessible corpus of spoken interactions of English as a lingua franca to be annotated in this way.

VOICE POS Online 2.0 is made available online as an additional feature to VOICE Online for all registered corpus users (https://www.univie.ac.at/voice/page/availability_voice_pos_online)

VOICE POS XML 2.0 is available for download as part of the XML download package, together with VOICE 2.0 XML (http://www.univie.ac.at/voice/page/download_voice_xml).

VOICE 2.0 Online and VOICE 2.0 XML are updated versions of the corpus with further revisions in the corpus texts (https://www.univie.ac.at/voice/page/corpus_availability)

All versions are available free-of-charge for non-commercial research purposes.

We hope you will enjoy working with VOICE POS Online and XML and the updated corpus versions and are very much looking forward to receiving any kind of feedback you might have (please send us an email to ).

Best wishes,
