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.
Joan Beal was educated at Newcastle University and is currently professor of English language at the University of Sheffield, UK. Her research interests are in two areas: the history of English in the Late Modern period (1700–1945) and dialect and identity in the north of England, but she often works on the interface between them. Her publications include English Pronunciation in the Eighteenth Century (Clarendon, 1999); English in Modern Times (Arnold, 2004); and An Introduction to Regional Englishes (Edinburgh University Press, 2011).

Karen P. Corrigan is professor of linguistics and English language at Newcastle University, UK. She has researched historical and current language change in dialects of the British Isles with a particular focus on Northern Ireland and northeast England. She was principal investigator on the project that created the Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (2000–2005) and currently fulfills the same role for the Diachronic Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (2010–2011). Her books include Creating and Digitizing Language Corpora, vols. 1 and 2 (with J. Beal and H. Moisl, 2007), and Irish English, Vol. 1, Northern Ireland (2010). K.firstname.lastname@example.org
