This short term speech study involves:
- Making 11 recorded phone calls to friends or family
- Recording/submitting 4 videos
- Submitting 1 selfie image
The current We Can Talk study aims to collect speech from bi-lingual speakers of Cantonese in different genres (calls and videos) and different styles and settings (formal / informal speech).
Participants must be at least 18 years old.
Participants receive compensation for each submitted call, video and selfie, and an additional bonus for completing all parts of the study.
Linguistic Data Consortium is a not-for-profit organization within the University of Pennsylvania that supports language-related education, research and technology development by creating and sharing linguistic resources including data, tools and standards.
Since its founding in 1992, LDC has conducted over 45 studies in which we collect examples of linguistic behavior from a large number of participants, while preserving the participants’ anonymity and maximizing the quality, diversity and volume of data available for language-related research. Each study is conducted with oversight from the University of Pennsylvania’s Office of Regulatory Affairs and its Institutional Review Board, whose mission includes the promotion of the rights and welfare of research study participants.
