A more robust search engine has been integrated to our catalogues. You may
now use either the new standard search from the catalogues' main page or
the extended search controlled thanks to three drop-down lists ('Match',
'Format' and 'Sort').  Direct access to the controlled search is given below:

ELRA is happy to announce that 1 new WordNet database and  2 new Speech
Resources are now available in its catalogue:

ELRA-M0047 Czech WordNet
The Czech WordNet captures nouns, verbs, adjectives, and partly adverbs,
and contains 28,201 word senses (synsets). Every synset encodes the
equivalence relation between several literals (at least one is present),
having a unique meaning, belonging to one and the same part of speech, and
expressing the same lexical meaning. Each Czech synset is related to the
corresponding synset in the Princeton WordNet 2.0. via its identification
number ID. There is at least one language-internal relation between a
synset and another synset in the database.

ELRA-S0294 CHIEDE Corpus: a spontaneous child language corpus of Spanish
The spontaneous child language corpus, CHIEDE, consists of 58,163 words, in
30 texts, with 7 hours and 53 minutes of recordings and 59 child
participants. About a third of the whole corpus is formed by child language
and the remaining two thirds by adult speech. The main feature of CHIEDE is
the interactions spontaneity: texts are recordings of communicative
situations in their natural context.
For more information, see:

ELRA-S0295 LILA Korean database
The LILA Korean database comprises 1,000 Korean speakers (500 males and 500
females) recorded over the Korean mobile telephone network. Each speaker
uttered around 60 read and spontaneous items.
