Description - Spoken Corpus Linguistics by Svenja Adolphs

This volume looks at the development of multi-modal spoken corpus analysis. In particular, Adolphs discusses the approaches and results of a number of related research projects that rely upon spoken corpora that integrates textual, prosodic and gestural representations of spoken interactions. Adolphs sets the scene by presenting and discussing traditional approaches to spoken corpus analysis and resource development. She then focuses on the alignment between language and gesture in a spoken corpus, as well as the different ways in which prosody might be used to enhance linguistic descriptions as they emerge from spoken corpus research. To conclude, she identifies new developments in the area of spoken corpus research, including the relationship between language and context, emerging research methods (such as the interface between social ethnographies and spoken corpus linguistics), as well as possible shifts in scope and emphasis in spoken corpus research in the future. This book also reports on new technologies for capturing spoken language in different contexts, and for representing them alongside other types of data, such as location-based data and bio-sensing data.
