transcribing talk in interaction
I coordinate the production of a multimodal corpus of recordings of face to face interactions, -
both for research purposes and as a resource for teaching activities. The talk is transcribed according to
conversation-analytic transcription conventions (as developed by Gail Jefferson).
At the moment (november 2004), we have about 4 hours of team-discussion meetings available in Transana.
For one of my classes in argumentation analysis (summer semester
1998/99), I provided a couple of transcriptions of television debates
as a part of an exercise. The debates were broadcast in spring 1997.
Both debates have a dialogic format. An English translation is not available.
Please mention your source when you use the transcription.
- The first debate is between a professor who wrote a book on the cultural
consequences of immigration and the host debater of the program, who
was very much against the ideas forwarded in the book.
- The second is with the radical spokesman of an organization of Dutch
farmers about the consequences of governmental
|ments regarding the environmental effects
of industrialized farming.

- TRANSANA. Since 2004, I do most of my transcription work in Transana.
This program enables working with large corpora, digital video and audio. It also provides
tools that support qualitative analysis of transcribed data. Transana is developed by Chris Fassnacht and David Woods
(University of Wisconsin). See Transana
- CLAN (Computerized Language ANalysis).
It can be downloaded from the CHILDES homepage.
CLAN is platform independent (Macintosh or Windows).
Danish network for interaction analysis research makes c.a.-style transcriptions
available in a CLAN-format (look under corpora). On request, the CD's with the
sound files also may be made available.
ELAN. Elan is developed at the Nijmegen Max Planck Institute
for Psycholinguistics (MPI). See
