A 'Time-Capsule' for the Google Generation: The Diachronic Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English

Posted by Karen Corrigan on April 3, 2015

DECTE is an amalgamation of the existing Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (NECTE) created between 2001 and 2005 (http://research.ncl.ac.uk/necte), and NECTE2, a collection of interviews conducted in the Tyneside area since 2007. It thereby constitutes a rare example of a publicly available on-line corpus presenting dialect material spanning five decades.
