Introduction 簡介

The Malaysia Cantonese Corpus (MYCanCor) is a collection of recordings of Malaysian Cantonese speech mainly collected in Perak, Malaysia. The corpus consists of around 20 hours of video recordings of spontaneous talk-in-interaction (56 settings) typically involving 2-4 speakers. A short scene description as well as basic speaker information is provided for each recording. The corpus is transcribed in CHAT (minCHAT) format and presented in traditional Chinese characters (UTF8) using the Hong Kong Supplementary Character Set (HKSCS). MYCanCor is expected to be a useful resource for researchers interested in any aspect of spoken language processing or Chinese multimodal corpora. 

馬來西亞粵語語料庫(MYCanCor)收錄的馬來西亞粵語對話主要錄影於馬來西亞霹靂州。本語料庫修錄了56個場景、約20小時的自然對話錄影資料,大多數情況下由24位參與者進行談話。語料庫附有每一段錄影的發生場景說明以及參與者的基本信息。轉錄格式採用了CHAT(minCHAT),以繁體中文(UTF8)和香港增補字符集(HKSCS)標註。該語料庫致力於為對中文口頭語言處理或對錄音、影像等多種模式的中文素材感興趣的研究者提供分析資源。
