ICE Scotland

It is the aim of the project to collect a 1-million-word corpus of spoken and written 21st century Scottish English. The corpus will contain the text categories and annotations specified by the ICE project plus a high number of additional linguistic annotations such as part-of-speech and phonetic transcriptions. The corpus will be available in an XML-format.

Corpus annotation is carried out with Pacx - Platform for Annotated Corpora. The corpus creation process is agile, which means query-driven, based on a cyclic processing model and following the minimal effort principle (see Voormann & Gut 2008).
