The CORDIAL-SIN is an annotated dialect corpus of European Portuguese. The materials for this corpus were drawn from the recordings of dialect speech collected by CLUL as fieldwork interviews for linguistic atlases between 1974 and 2004. The informants were aged, received little instruction, lived in a rural area, and were born and raised in the location of the interview. The CORDIAL-SIN compiles a geographically representative body of selected excerpts of spontaneous and semi-directed speech from these interviews. The corpus contains c. 640,000 words, collected from 42 locations within the continental territory of Portugal and the archipels of Madeira and Azores.
The CORDIAL-SIN is available online and downloadable as written data, in four different formats: two kinds of orthographic transcripts (more or less detailed for the marking up of spoken language phenomena), part-of-speech (PoS) tagged corpus and syntactically annotated corpus.
