CALLHOME German Speech
Linguistic Data Consortium, Philadelphia


The CALLHOME German corpus of telephone speech consists of 100 unscripted telephone conversations between native speakers of German.


All calls originated in North America and were placed to locations overseas (typically Europe). Most participants called family members or close friends.

This corpus contains speech data files ONLY, along with the minimal amount of documentation needed to describe the contents and format of the speech files and the software packages needed to uncompress the speech data. The transcripts and documentation (LDC97T15) are available separately, as is an associated lexicon (LDC97L18).


There are no updates at this time.
