This area of the archive houses the MP3 versions (listed below) of the audio recordings deposited as primary source data in DARDOSIPCAT. MP3 format is a widely supported audio compression format with public specifications. No special software is necessary to download, open, search, or view these resources. Archival versions of each of these recordings have been deposited in uncompressed format as well; however, the uncompressed versions are not served online due to their size.
The MP3 audio recordings may be used, in part or in whole, in published academic research, so long as they are cited appropriately. They may serve as the basis for later phonemic and/or phonetic transcription, or as examples of ways of speaking Spanish in Barcelona in academic pursuits of all kinds, including research as well as all forms of teaching and learning. Downloads of the DARDOSIPCAT Audio Recordings are, at this time, restricted to authorized DARDOSIPCAT users to protect the anonymity of participants in particular communicative events. Authorized users are reminded that restricted downloads are for research purposes only and all uses of the DARDOSIPCAT Audio Recordings are subject to the archive terms and conditions explicitly stated on the consent form required for authorized use (coming soon).
Present DARDOSIPCAT Audio Recordings available for download belong to The Vann Corpus, the archive's first deposit (currently in progress). The Vann Corpus contains resources collected in 1995 from members of naturally-occurring social groups in Barcelona, including 58 recordings of linguistic interviews and 18 recordings of group conversations. The recording and digitization conventions used in this corpus will be documented soon.
