Benvingut a les transcripcions de DARDOSIPCAT!
This area of the archive houses the orthographic transcriptions (listed below) that correspond to the audio recordings deposited as primary source data in DARDOSIPCAT. The transcriptions facilitate access to particular sections of MP3 audio, and they serve as a foundation for future analysis of the primary data. These transcriptions 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 discursive representations of ways of speaking Spanish in Barcelona in academic pursuits of all kinds, including research as well as all forms of teaching and learning. Though all transcriptions deposited in DARDOSIPCAT have been edited and revised by at least two separate individuals, including native speakers of Spanish, most are still of draft quality, both in terms of accuracy and representation. As such, all transcriptions here are presented "as is" with the hope that future study may improve upon them. Transcription is as much art as science, and DARDOSIPCAT respects the human condition. The only claims that the DARDOSIPCAT Transcriptions make are those of good faith effort and honest intent on the part of transcribers to represent the communicative events as best they could.
All transcriptions are provided in PDF format, which is a widely supported format with public specifications. No special software is necessary to download, open, search, or view these resources. Downloads of the DARDOSIPCAT Transcriptions depend on the access settings of particular resources. Downloads of most transcriptions are restricted to authorized DARDOSIPCAT users to protect the anonymity of participants in particular communicative events, though some transcriptions here are available for general download. Authorized users are reminded that restricted downloads are for research purposes only and all uses of the DARDOSIPCAT Transcriptions are subject to the archive terms and conditions explicitly stated on the consent form required for authorized use (coming soon). Present DARDOSIPCAT Transcriptions 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 transcription conventions used in this corpus, which include italics for linguistic examples, underline for words in Catalan, and <> marks for overlapping text, will be documented soon.
