British Academic Spoken English Corpus (BASE)
The lectures and seminars have been transcribed and tagged using a system devised in accordance with the TEI Guidelines. The corpus has been deposited in the Oxford Text Archive and is catalogued by the Arts and Humanities Data Service.
The early stages of corpus development were assisted by funding from the Universities of Warwick and Reading , BALEAP, EURALEX, and The British Academy (2000-2001, Grant reference: SG 30284).
Major funding was provided by the Arts and Humanities Research Board as part of their Resource Enhancement Scheme (2001–2005, Award Number: RE/AN6806/APN13545).
