The Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English 2

The NECTE2 corpus comprises dyadic sociolinguistic interviews of Tyneside English speakers conducted between November 2007 and April 2008. The project is intended as a follow-up to the NECTE corpus, which amalgamates two pre-existing corpora: the Tyneside Linguistic Survey (TLS) project, with interviews conducted in the late 1960s and early 1970s; and the Phonological Variation and Change in Contemporary Spoken English (PVC) project, with interviews conducted between 1991 and 1994. (Full details of these corpora are available on the NECTE website).

Any questions or comments can be emailed to the Necte2 administrators.
