Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: This workshop provides a meeting ground for scholars involved in the creation of corpora of spoken language or with a more general interested in the representation of spoken data based on audio/video recordings. The workshop addresses the need to harmonise corpus-building methods by developing or utilising internationally recognised standards in corpus linguistics or best practice guidelines for the transcription and annotation of audio/video data. The aim is to facilitate the exchange of experience from large-scale and coordinated corpus building efforts as well as small-scale and local initiatives. This includes accounts of, on the one hand, the practicalities encountered in corpus compilation, transcription and annotation, and on the other hand, how annotation decisions are grounded in linguistic theory. This will hopefully stimulate a fruitful discussion about whether/how cross-corpora comparison is hampered by lack of uniformity in annotation schema and procedures, what solutions corpus builders recommend at different annotation levels, practical experience with the use of existing standards or de facto standards (e.g. COBUILD/NERC, TEI, XCES), methods for testing and improving inter-annotator agreement, etc.
