Message 2: New LDC Publications

Date: Fri, 02 May 2003 12:16:33 -0400
From: Linguistic Data Consortium <ldcldc.upenn.edu>
Subject: New LDC Publications



 		LDC2003L01
 * Grassfields Bantu Fieldwork: Dschang Lexicon *

 		LDC2003S02
 * Grassfields Bantu Fieldwork: Dschang Tone Paradigms *


 		*


The Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) is pleased to announce the
availability of two new publications.


1. The Grassfields Bantu Fieldwork: Dschang Lexicon contains a
lexicon of the language Y�mba (Bamileke Dschang), a Bamileke
(Grassfields Bantu) language spoken in Southwestern Cameroon. The
publication consists of one CD-ROM.

The data is organized into two sets of pages in HTML format. In the
first set, one page lists every word in the lexicon that begins with a
given letter (or letter combination). In the second set, one page
lists approximately 25 entries, unless there are fewer than 25 entries
beginning with a given letter. The second set is more convenient for
use on slower machines.

Each entry under a headword has links to 2 or more soundfiles. Two
speakers were recorded; a given entry generally contains links to
utterances of the headword by both speakers, as well as a laryngograph
recording of the headword by the second speaker. Nouns may also have
links to pronunciations of the plurals, and verbs may have links to
pronunciations of the imperative and infinitive forms. These ancillary
forms will in general also have laryngograph recordings.

For further information, please visit:

http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/Catalog/CatalogEntry.jsp?catalogId=LDC2003L01

Institutions that have membership in the LDC during the 2003
Membership Year will be able to receive this corpus free of charge.

NOTE:

The cost of the first 100 copies of this publication (not counting the
copies distributed to LDC members) is covered by NSF Grant Number
9983258, and therefore free of charge to qualified researchers; a $30
shipping and handling fee applies. After these first 100 copies are
distributed, additional copies will be available for the production
cost of $150 per CD-ROM.


2. The Grassfields Bantu Fieldwork: Dschang Tone Paradigms contains
tone paradigms of the language Y�mba (Bamileke Dschang), a Bamileke
(Grassfields Bantu) language spoken in Southwestern Cameroon. The
publication is available on a single CD-ROM.

The data consists of 45 paradigm pages in html format. Each page lists
32 utterances, varying across subject, verb, and object. Each
utterance has 1 to 3 links to recordings in .wav format, as well as a
laryngograph recording (also in .wav format). Phonetic transcription
has been completed for every utterance; tonological transcription has
been completed for a little more than half.
