Abstract and Keywords

The first stage in the development of the Diachronic Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (DECTE) was the construction of the Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (NECTE) between 2000 and 2005. NECTE is a legacy corpus based on data collected for two sociolinguistic surveys conducted on Tyneside, north-east England, in c.1969–1971 and 1994, respectively. This chapter focuses on transcription issues relevant for addressing research questions in phonetics/phonology. There is also discussion of the text encoding systems employed in constructing NECTE, and the rationale for their adoption, as well as the dissemination strategy employed since 2005.

Keywords: Tyneside, coding, transcription, tagging, dissemination
