Hi everyone,

I have been looking for Arabic Tunisian conversation corpora (ideally including Intonation Units or at least punctuation). So far I have found a few but either with no direct access to the conversations (only a search engine for lemmas) such as or a very specialized discourse like TuDiCoI (Tunisian Dialect Corpus Interlocutor) related to Railway Information.

I would like to know if there are accessible corpora (online or download) based on natural conversations (not scripted). I would also be grateful for anyone willing to share their own data.

Thank you in advance.
