Metadata

BeMaTaC – A deeply annotated multimodal map-task corpus of spoken learner and native German

All speakers are only listed once. In dialogue pairs, the first dialogue's instructor serves as the second dialogue's instructee and vice versa.

All variables and their possible values are described in detail at the bottom of this page. The last line indicates totals (dialogues and speakers), ratios (female:male and 1st:2nd in sequence), the number of occurrences (acquaintance, smoker, braces, piercing, language disorder), and averages (all other values).
