The aim of this project consists in systematically archiving and making available 200 hours of spoken Standard Dutch, produced by 160 Flemish and Dutch teachers of Dutch. The speech collection concerned is highly valuable. With respect to the composition of the corpus several social and linguistic variables were taken into account. Furthermore, the recordings are of high (stereo) quality. Therefore this corpus can be used for phonetic, phonological as well as for sociolinguistic purposes.
