Listen to this Macquarie Dictionary podcast with interesting remarks on the Australian English accents and pronunciation from Felicity Cox, and some audio snippets from data which is available through Alveo.
Hosted by the Big Data Processing and Mining Group at UWA, 13 researchers, including 6 members of the Alveo Steering Committee met for 2 days to discuss further improvements to the platform and how they will use Alveo in their own research. Several researchers and post-graduate students from UWA and Curtin University participated in the workshop and presented their own projects.
Students at Monash University used Alveo as part of an introductory course in computational linguistics this year. The students completed an assignment which used basic techniques of corpus linguistics to compare one phenomenon in varieties of English.
