Database of Oral L2 Corpora: German, Spanish, English

As part of a research project at the University of Southampton in the
,UK, we have constructed a database of French Learner Language Oral
Corpora: http://www.flloc.soton.ac.uk/. This web-based database
contains a range of corpora of learners at various levels, and
includes digital soundfiles and transcripts in CHAT format (the
CHILDES transcription system) of all the data, as well as
morphosyntactic outputs for most of the transcripts. All the data is
freely downloadable from the site (provided the ground rules are
adhered to).

We are now considering extending the database to other languages,
initially German, Spanish and English, and would like to know how much
interest there is in the SLA community for databases of this kind. If
you are interested, please fill in the details below, and return to
F.J.Mylessoton.ac.uk, by 12 November 2004.
