The London-Lund Corpus contains samples of educated spoken British English, in orthographic transcription with detailed prosodic marking. It consists of 100 'texts', each of some 5,000 running words. The text categories represented are spontaneous conversation, spontaneous commentary, spontaneous and prepared oration, etc.
The London-Lund Corpus of Spoken English derives from two projects. The first is the Survey of English Usage (SE) at University College London, launched in 1959 by Randolph Quirk. The second project is the Survey of Spoken English (SSE), which was started by Jan Svartvik at Lund University in 1975 as a sister project of the London Survey.
