EXMARaLDA – creating, analysing and sharing spoken language corpora for pragmatic research
Thomas Schmidt and Kai Wörner
This paper presents EXMARaLDA, a system for the computer-assisted creation and analysis of spoken language corpora. The first part contains some general observations about technological and methodological requirements for doing corpus-based pragmatics. The second part explains the system’s architecture and gives an overview of its most important software components – a transcription editor, a corpus management tool and a corpus query tool. The last part presents some corpora which have been or are currently being compiled with the help of EXMARaLDA.
