Project A01

The Konstanz Tricky Corpus

Principal Investigators: Bettina Braun
Miriam Butt
Nicole Dehé
Research Staff: Daniela Wochner

Project Description:
The aim of this project is to explore the foundations of the interface between acoustic information, syntactic form, and meaning, with a special focus on prosody, in that the project will investigate which acoustic information can be extracted and interpreted automatically. For this reason, a corpus will be created, recorded and analysed, which includes notoriously difficult phenomena of acoustic encoding, syntactic structure ad semantic-pragmatic annotation. This corpus will complement the corpus of naturally-spoken language created in B01.
