The World Atlas of Language Structures (WALS) is a large database of structural (phonological, grammatical, lexical) properties of languages gathered from descriptive materials (such as reference grammars) by a team of 55 authors (many of them the leading authorities on the subject).
PARADISEC (the Pacific And Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures) offers a facility for digital conservation and access to endangered materials from all over the world. Our research group has developed models to ensure that the archive can provide access to interested communities, and conforms with emerging international standards for digital archiving. We have established a framework for accessioning, cataloguing and digitising audio, text and visual material, and preserving digital copies. The primary focus of this initial stage is safe preservation of material that would otherwise be lost, especially field tapes from the 1950s and 1960s.
CLARIN is a European Research Infrastructure for the Humanities and Social Sciences, focusing on language resources (data and tools). It is being implemented and constantly improved at leading institutions in a large and growing number of European countries, aiming at improving Europe's multi-linguality competence. CLARIN provides several services, such as access to language data and tools to analyze data, and offers to deposit research data, as well as direct access to knowledge about relevant topics in relation to (research on and with) language resources. The main tool is the 'Virtual Language Observatory' providing metadata and access to the different national CLARIN centers and their data.
D-PLACE contains cultural, linguistic, environmental and geographic information for over 1400 human ‘societies’. A ‘society’ in D-PLACE represents a group of people in a particular locality, who often share a language and cultural identity. All cultural descriptions are tagged with the date to which they refer and with the ethnographic sources that provided the descriptions. The majority of the cultural descriptions in D-PLACE are based on ethnographic work carried out in the 19th and early-20th centuries (pre-1950).
The figshare service for The Open University was launched in 2016 and allows researchers to store, share and publish research data. It helps the research data to be accessible by storing metadata alongside datasets. Additionally, every uploaded item receives a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the data to be citable and sustainable. If there are any ethical or copyright concerns about publishing a certain dataset, it is possible to publish the metadata associated with the dataset to help discoverability while sharing the data itself via a private channel through manual approval.
>>>>> As of 01/12/2015, deposit of data on SLDR website will be suspended to allow the public opening of Ortolang platform .<<<<<Speech & Language Data Repository (SLDR) is a Trusted Data Repository offering labs and scholars a free-of-charge service for sharing their oral/linguistic data and archiving it with the help of procedures compliant with the OAIS model for long-term preservation. Its entire storage is referenced in international repositories such as OLAC (Open Language Archives Community) and CLARIN Virtual Language Observatory (VLO). Currently, packages are distributed via the TGE-Adonis grid, now integrated in Huma-Num, hosted by CC-IN2P3 and preserved on the platform of CINES, an institutional archive beneficiary of the Data Seal of Approval.
Språkbanken (the Swedish Language Bank) was established in 1975 as a national center located in the Faculty of Arts, University of Gothenburg. Alléns groundbreaking corpus linguistic research resulted in the creation of one of the first large electronic text corpora in another language than English, with one million words of newspaper text. The task of Språkbanken is to collect, develop, and store (Swedish) text corpora, and to make linguistic data extracted from the corpora available to researchers and to the public.
The Alaska Native Language Archive houses documentation of the various Native languages of Alaska and helps to preserve and cultivate this unique heritage for future generations. As the premier repository worldwide for information relating to the Native languages of Alaska, the Archive serves researchers, teachers and students, as well as members of the broader community. The collection includes both published and unpublished materials in or on all of the Alaska Native languages and related languages. The collection has enduring cultural, historic, and intellectual value, particularly for Alaska Native language speakers and their descendants
Mulce (MUltimodal contextualized Learner Corpus Exchange) is a research project supported by the National Research Agency (ANR programme: "Corpus and Tools in the Humanities", ANR-06-CORP-006). A teaching corpus (LETEC - Learning and Teaching Corpora) combines a systematic and structured data set, particularly of interactional data, and traces left by a training course experimentation, conducted partially or completely online and completed by additional technical, human, pedagogical and scientific information to enable the data to be analysed in context.
Lithuania became a full member of CLARIN ERIC in January of 2015 and soon CLARIN-LT consortium was founded by three partner universities: Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas Technology University and Vilnius University. The main goal of the consortium is to become a CLARIN B centre, which will be able to serve language users in Lithuania and Europe for storing and accessing language resources.
The Informatics Research Data Repository is a Japanese data repository that collects data on disciplines within informatics. Such sub-categories are things like consumerism and information diffusion. The primary data within these data sets is from experiments run by IDR on how one group is linked to another.
The Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics (TROLLing) is designed as an archive of linguistic data and statistical code. The archive is open access, which means that all information is available to everyone. All postings are accompanied by searchable metadata that identify the researchers, the languages and linguistic phenomena involved, the statistical methods applied, and scholarly publications based on the data (where relevant). Linguists worldwide are invited to post datasets and statistical code used in their linguistic research.
CLARIN.SI is the Slovenian node of the European CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure) Centers. The CLARIN.SI repository is hosted at the Jožef Stefan Institute and offers long-term preservation of deposited linguistic resources, along with their descriptive metadata. The integration of the repository with the CLARIN infrastructure gives the deposited resources wide exposure, so that they can be known, used and further developed beyond the lifetime of the projects in which they were produced. Among the resources currently available in the CLARIN.SI repository are the multilingual MULTEXT-East resources, the CC version of Slovenian reference corpus Gigafida, the morphological lexicon Sloleks, the IMP corpora and lexicons of historical Slovenian, as well as many other resources for a variety of languages. Furthermore, several REST-based web services are provided for different corpus-linguistic and NLP tasks.
Currently the institute has more than 450 collections consisting of (digital) research data, digitized material, archival collections, printed material, handwritten questionnaires, maps and pictures. The focus is on resources relevant for the study of function, meaning and coherence of cultural expressions and resources relevant for the structural, dialectological and sociolinguistic study of language variation within the Dutch language. An overview is here
The project is set up in order to improve the infrastructure for text-based linguistic research and development by building a huge, automatically annotated German text corpus and the corresponding tools for corpus annotation and exploitation. DeReKo constitutes the largest linguistically motivated collection of contemporary German texts, contains fictional, scientific and newspaper texts, as well as several other text types, contains only licenced texts, is encoded with rich meta-textual information, is fully annotated morphosyntactically (three concurrent annotations), is continually expanded, with a focus on size and stratification of data, may be analyzed free of charge via the query system COSMAS II, serves as a 'primordial sample' from which users may draw specialized sub-samples (socalled 'virtual corpora') to represent the language domain they wish to investigate.
