BAS CLARIN Repository

This repository of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München contains all BAS resources that have been made accessible within the CLARIN infrastructure.
The repository contains corpora of spoken language and multi-modal corpora, predominantly in German.
The smallest unit described by metadata is the recording session, which is defined as a collection of media recordings and annotation files belonging to one recording event in time; therefore the smallest searchable and downloadable resource part is a complete recording session with media and annotation files. The repository search function allows you to define and download cross-corpora datasets.
Access to contents marked with
'free if you are a scientist' is free for verified academic users; for some resources marked 'restricted', special restrictions may apply
Non-academic users may obtain a user license from BAS which grants an access code to selected resources of this repository
(contact for details).
