I would like to access the sound recordings of the spoken part of the corpus. Where are they stored, and can I get access to them?
Some of the recordings from which the spoken parts of the BNC were transcribed are now stored at the The British Library Sound Archive. The AudioBNC project started in 2010 to work on aligning this sound data with the BNC transcripts. The corpus aligned with the digital audio can now be queried via an experimental BNCweb service at Lancaster University.
