EXMARaLDA is a system for constructing, managing and exploiting
spoken language corpora. It is used, among others, by linguists
studying spoken discourse, language acquisition, dialectal variation

for transcribing and annotating digital audio or video recordings; the
Corpus manager, a tool for bundling recordings and transcriptions into
a corpus and managing their metadata; and EXAKT, a query and
analysis tool for EXMARaLDA corpora.

The new versions of the tools have new and improved interoperability
features for importing or exporting data from (among others)
CHAT/CLAN, ELAN and Transcriber - users of these tools may be

EXMARaLDA is free and open source software. Its development is
ongoing. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions for
