THE SHEFFIELD SEARCH AND RESCUE CORPUS


As part of an ongoing research into extracting mission-critical information from Search and Rescue speech communications, a corpus of unscripted, goal-oriented, two-party spoken conversations has been designed and collected. The Sheffield Search and Rescue (SSAR) corpus comprises about 12 hours of data from 96 conversations by 24 native speakers of British English with a southern accent. Each conversation is about a collaborative task of exploring and estimating a simulated indoor environment.

Semantic Annotation for Mandarin Verbal Lexicon


This study examines the challenging issues in the semantic annotation of the characteristics of verbal information of Mandarin Chinese. It proposes a frame-based constructional approach that aligns with linguistic premises in Frame Semantics, Construction Grammar and Cognitive Grammar. Given that semantic processing has a lot to do with human cognitive capacities, semantic transfer and profile on the basis of natural inferences of event chains have to be considered in verb categorization and representation.

A Linguistic Annotation Scheme of Chinese Discourse Structures and Study of Prosodic Interaction


Speech discourse comprehension is crucial for developing intelligent speech processing technologies. The present research aims to establish a multi-layered annotation scheme for Chinese discourse that contains inter-related information of phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. This research provides a theoretical foundation and analytical support for discourse comprehension by examining and modelling the relationships between prosody and morphology-syntax, as well as semantics and other structures during speech interactions.
