<h3>Introduction</h3> <p>Xi'an Guanzhong Object Naming is comprised of approximately 15 hours of audio recordings from speakers of the Guanzhong dialect of Mandarin Chinese living in or near Xi'an in Shaangxi Province (China) naming objects that appeared in colored line drawings. The corpus was developed to support traditional and computer aided language documentation.</p> <h3>Data</h3> <p>This collection was conducted from February-May 2021 using <a href="https://languagearc.com/">LanguageArc</a>, a citizen science portal developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium, from a closed volunteer community. Speakers were presented with images selected from the <a href="https://www.bcbl.eu/databases/multipic">MultiPic dataset</a> and were asked to record themselves naming the objects in the images.</p> <p>The task yielded 34,729 audio recordings. The data is organized into 622 directories according to the image presented. Each directory contains on average 42 recordings sampled at 16kHz, 16bit, in single channel, FLAC encoded files.</p> <h3>Samples</h3> <p>Please view the following <a href="desc/addenda/LDC2022S09.flac">sample</a>. Note that due to the very short length of the audio files in this corpus, some browsers and applications may have difficulty playing the files.</p> <h3>Updates</h3> <p>None at this time.</p>
