Slips of the Tongue Corpus
Message 1: English Dictionaries with Local Pronunciation
From: Luciano Canepari <canepariunive.it>
Subject: English Dictionaries with Local Pronunciation
I'm looking for a good dictionary for New Zealand and South African English
which features accurate and reliable phonEMic transcriptions for the local (i.e.
NZE and SAE) pronunciations. Could someone suggest any? Are there any such
dictionaries for Ireland (Eire) and India?
I'm looking into possible differences in the distribution of phonemes between
different accents (as happens between British English and American English for
words such as ''shone'', ''either'', ''song'', ''lost'', ''last'', ''Mary'',
''hurry'') or as regards stress, etc, etc.
While for Canadian and Australian English I already have some satisfactory
dictionaries, I can't say the same for those for New Zealand or South African

Subject: Slips of the Tongue Corpus
Good afternoon I am Claudia Ciullo an italian student. I've been attending the
faculty of language in Rome. I've been preparing my thesis concerning slips of
the tongue. Can you suggest me some corpora where I can individualize lapses. My
thesis is based on empiric data.
Grazie for your collaboration
