Abstract and Keywords
VALIBEL research centre hosts one of the largest speech bank of spoken French. This speech bank is not a homogenous corpus, tailored for a single purpose, but rather a compilation of corpora, collected with a wide range of linguistic applications in mind and integrated into a database allowing for various kinds of investigations. This contribution gives a thorough description of this database, with a special attention for the features that are of interest for research in phonology such a transcription, annotation and management of metadata.
Anne Catherine Simon is Professor of French Linguistics at the Catholic University of Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium). She is in charge of the VALIBEL research centre since 2009. Her research in French linguistics is in the areas of prosody and syntax of spoken speech, and their interaction in various speaking genres. Her dissertation, entitled Structuration prosodique du discours en français, was published in 2004. And other book co-authored by A.C. Simon is La variation prosodique régionale en français (2012).
Michel Francard is Professor of Linguistics at the Catholic University of Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve) and founder of the VALIBEL research centre in 1989. His main research interests include linguistic variation (especially the lexicography of peripheral French varieties) and the evolution of endangered languages in the globalized linguistic market. His most recent book Dictionnaire des belgicismes (De Boeck, 2010) illustrates the emergence of an autonomous norm within a variety of French outside France.
Philippe Hambye is Professor of French linguistics at the University of Louvain. His research mainly includes works in sociolinguistics regarding variation of linguistic norms and practices in the French-speaking world, language practices in education and work, and language policies, with a special interest in questions of legitimacy, power and social inequalities.
