Almost two hundred years ago, the first Norwegians took to America to start a new life. Since then nearly 900,000 Norwegians have followed. At present, most Norwegian Americans only speak American, but there still are some who learned Norwegian at home and who continue to speak Norwegian as adults. These Americans are most often well up in their eighties and nineties.
Corpus of American Norwegian Speech is a small speech corpus with conversations and interviews from some of these Norwegian Americans. The transcriptions are both phonetic and orthographic and are linked to audio and video.
Corpus of American Norwegian Speech will be extended with both new and older recordings and transcriptions.
