Annotation in ELAN

We annotate our data in ELAN - Multimedia Annotation Tool, developed by Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, The Language Archive, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

About 10 students are employed as research assistants - all of them have studied linguistics for at least one year.
The research assistants get detailed annotation instructions (updated when needed).
We hold weekly meetings on annotation issues and e-mail contact whenever questions arise.
