CALLHOME German Speech was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium and consists of conversational telephone speech between native speakers of German.


This corpus contains speech files from 100 unscripted telephone conversations and related documentation.

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

LDC has also released CALLHOME German Transcripts (LDC97T15), which consists of transcriptions of portions of the speech in this release and CALLHOME German Lexicon (LDC97L18), which contains words from CALLHOME German Transcripts.
