Uh, hello, everyone. I am a Russian student. I’m studying at mathematical faculty, and I have been learning English since I entered the second grade. I like how much content this language gives access to and its consistency at some points.

[Subject says in Russian roughly what he just said in English]: Всем привет, я студент из России. Я изучаю язык со второго класса школы. Мне он нравится за то, как много он открывает в плане изучения чего-то нового, связи с людьми разных областей и разных увлечений.

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).
