ORTHOGRAPHIC TRANSCRIPTION OF UNSCRIPTED SPEECH:

Doing something and then, you know, warm up your food and doing another thing. So how you can manage that, that, the best thing is, for example, you can manage is that while you, one day that most people are doing: warming up, sitting by the TV, watching movies; then when it’s ready, food is ready, having the food and then starting a new thing. I personally think, OK, why don’t we going to start, uh, doing one thing while the food is in, the, like a heater? Or microwave? So probably we couldn’t finish that one in like a minute, [noise on the recording] but either so we have actually have done a part of that. So we’re ahead a part of that. That’s the thing I’m thinking that we have to do most of the time.

The archive provides:

  • Recordings of accent/dialect speakers from the region you select.
  • Text of the speakers’ biographical details.
  • Scholarly commentary and analysis in some cases.
  • In most cases, an orthographic transcription of the speakers’ unscripted speech.  In a small number of cases, you will also find a narrow phonetic transcription of the sample (see Phonetic Transcriptions for a complete list).  The recordings average four minutes in length and feature both the reading of one of two standard passages, and some unscripted speech. The two passages are Comma Gets a Cure (currently our standard passage) and The Rainbow Passage (used in our earliest recordings).
