We would like to inform you about two corpora of spoken discourse available at the Research Center on Multilingualism in Hamburg/ Germany. Both corpora can be accessed online at no charge for research and teaching purposes.
1.The CoSi-corpus consists of six hours of presentational discourse (35.000 words, transcriptions and audio files) in Portuguese rendered into German (simultaneous and consecutive interpreting). Further information: http://exmaralda.org/en_sfb_k6.html
2.The DiK-corpus consists of 91 doctor-patient interactions in German, Portuguese and Turkish (mainly medical interviews and informed consent, 160.000 words, transcriptions only). Half of the interactions take place with participation of ad-hoc-interpreters (nurses or family members of the patient). Further information: http://exmaralda.org/en_sfb_k2.html
The access is password-protected. A password will be given upon request by Thomas Schmidt (thomas.schmidtuni-hamburg.de). For details about both corpora, please contact Bernd Meyer (bernd.meyeruni-hamburg.de).
