Abstract and Keywords
This chapter presents EXMARaLDA, a system for creating, managing, and analysing digital corpora of spoken language. EXMARaLDA is mainly used by researchers in pragmatics and conversation analysis and dialectology, but also for phonetics and phonology and studies of multimodality. The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the reader to the main features of EXMARaLDA, with a particular emphasis on its use for corpus phonology. It outlines some general design principles of the system and then describes the data model and software tools as the main components of EXMARaLDA. The chapter concludes with a set of corpus exam-ples demonstrating the use of EXMARaLDA in phonology, in discourse analysis and in dia-lectology.
