The Translanguage English Database (TED) Speech project, Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) catalog number LDC2002S04 and ISBN 1-58563-218-x is a joint publication between the European Language Resources Association (ELRA) and the LDC. This is an LDC release of the ELRA TED corpus of recordings made at Eurospeech '93 in Berlin. Joint LDC/ELRA distribution of this work was sponsored in part by National Science Foundation Grant No. IIS-9982201.


The TED audio recordings have non-native English speakers presenting academic papers for approximately 15 minutes each. Included on the TED audio publication are the papers, poster sessions, and original transcripts of oral recordings for a subset of the presentations, but are not available for every author in this publication.

There are 188 speech files, of which 39 are transcribed and available as LDC2002T03. The 39 transcripts in this publication are in Universal Transcription Format (UTF) and were prepared by the LDC. All UTF files in the transcript publication were validated against the utf.dtd.
