Transcription workshop

18 November 2011 

This two-day workshop introduced early career researchers and postgraduate students with little or no previous knowledge to the process of transcribing recordings of bilingual speech using CHAT (http://childes.psy.cmu.edu) together with a system of language marking. Participants had access to our three bilingual corpora (see http://www.siarad.org.uk/) and also learnt how to use some of the CLAN programs for analysis. It was held at the Bangor University Centre for Research on Bilingualism, November 17 – 18, 2011, and it was led by Professor Margaret Deuchar (the Centre Director) and other researchers at the Centre who are involved in the development of bilingual corpora.
