RUEG Corpus

RUEG corpus contains parallel, yet naturalistic data from bilingual and monolingual speakers in English, German, Greek, Russian and Turkish. It supports systematic comparisons across languages, countries, heritage and majority language contexts, mono- vs. bilingual speaker groups, age groups and communicative situations (formal and informal, spoken and written). The corpus is being developed since 2018 within the context of the research unit "Emerging Grammars in Language-Contact Situations" (speaker: Heike Wiese, Humboldt University of Berlin). It was created to identify and compare nonstandard phenomena in different language contact constellations. The Corpus is available via open access.
