A workshop about the KIParla corpus to kick off the CHORD-Talk-in-interaction project

CHORD talk in interaction


KIParla is a publicly accessible corpus of spoken Italian that currently consists of 100 hours of audio-recorded and transcribed discourse in various types of situations and is designed to be expanded by further modules. In a workshop that will take place at USI on April 28, 2023, Caterina Mauri and Silvia Ballarè (University of Bologna) will present this resource and discuss the KIParla case as an example of open research data in linguistics. The invited speakers will dialogue with Lorenza Mondada (University of Basel) in the role of discussant and engage in a more general debate with the audience about practices and challenges related to data collection, storage, sharing and reuse in the study of talk-in-interaction.

The workshop is the first of a series of events planned by the team of the project "Data-sharing skills in corpus-based research on talk-in-interaction" within SwissUniversities' program about open research data (ORD). The organized events address a public of researchers in interactional linguistics and neighbouring fields and, more generally, of researchers in the humanities who are interested in the topic of open data.
