On the occasion of EXMARaLDA's 10th anniversary, we are pleased toannounce new versions of the EXMARaLDA tools, downloadable

EXMARaLDA is a system for constructing, managing and exploitingspoken language corpora. It is used, among others, by linguistsstudying spoken discourse, language acquisition, dialectal variationand phonology.

EXMARaLDA consists of three software tools: the Partitur-Editor, a toolfor transcribing and annotating digital audio or video recordings; theCorpus manager, a tool for bundling recordings and transcriptions intoa corpus and managing their metadata; and EXAKT, a query andanalysis tool for EXMARaLDA corpora.

The new versions of the tools have new and improved interoperabilityfeatures for importing or exporting data from (among others)CHAT/CLAN, ELAN and Transcriber - users of these tools may beinterested in trying out the import wizards of the EXAKT query tool.

EXMARaLDA is free and open source software. Its development isongoing. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions forimprovement.

With kind regards,
