Open access: RUEG Corpus


  • All our resources are open! We are happy to announce the first public release of our corpus. The publication to cite is https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3236068. This URL will always point to the latest release of the RUEG corpus, so it is easy to cite the most recent corpus version even before its release.

Open access: RUEG Methods

Our research is based on a shared set-up, "Language Situations", suitable to elicit comparable, yet naturalistic productions across formal and informal, spoken and written registers. There is open access to all RUEG instruments like stimula, elicitation order and training clip.
