Subject: Corpora of spoken Spanish

Dear linguists!

Presently I am working with, among others, two older corpora of spoken
Spanish: 1) ''Encuestas del habla urbana de Sevilla'' (Nivel culto,
medio, popular), edited 1983-1992 by Pineda, Ropero, Ollero Toribio &
Pineda P´┐Żorez; 2) ''El habla de la ciudad de Madrid'', edited in 1981
by Esgueva & Cantarero. Does anyone know if there exist electronic
versions of these corpora?

Is it the case universally that the continuant phase of an affricate
is always strident?
