There is a new version of the EXMARaLDA demo corpus: EXMARaLDA examples in thirteen languages, completely revised and with audio and video data according to the newest specifications. Victoria Beckham is still a heart-warming preson, Rudi Völler still very angry and Ségolène Royal still somewhat upset.
EXMARaLDA is currently undergoing major surgery: the tools have to be adapted to work with 64bit systems, OpenJDK and Java 11+. This is necessary, among other things, to make EXMARaLDA work with video support on MAC OS Catalina. After a lot of fiddling with the details, preview versions are available now on the Preview Download page.
As a positive side effect, video support on Windows is also improved: the new JavaFX player can now be used to work with MPEG-4 videos.
On Monday, April 27th, a new version of the Database for Spoken German (Datenbank für Gesprochenes Deutsch ,DGD) has gone online.
This version contains an extension of the Research and Teaching Corpus of Spoken German FOLK – a 300h / 3 Million Word Corpus of transcribed audio and video recordings of spoken interaction from various private, institutional and public contexts.
