Dear linguists,

We (Kevin Tang, Yale and Andrew Nevins, University College London) are pleased
to announce the release of the SEAR Project (Slip of the EAR), an archive of
speech perception errors collected in everyday settings (aka Naturalistic
Slips of the Ear):

The 2015 edition includes ~ 5000 instances of naturalistic slips of the ear of
English. These instances have been extracted from four existing corpora as
well as two unpublished corpora and compiled into a single searchable
convenience database. The combined data set includes orthographic
transcriptions, dialectal phonetic transcriptions, as well as meta-data (if
available) about each instance such as the interlocutors' demographic details.

In addition, the archive provides an interactive exploration interface. It is
constantly being updated and growing because of potential contributors such as
yourselves. There are two ways of contributing which are via a submission form
(http://www.searproject.org/contribute/) or you can simply tweet it with
#ohmightear (https://twitter.com/ohmightear).

For a detailed description of the compilation of the SEAR Project, see Tang
(2015) (Chapter 2, p.65--175).
For a brief overview, see Tang (2015) (Chapter 2, p.65--96).

For examples of some of the research we are doing with the SEAR Project, see
Tang (2015), Tang & Nevins (2014) and Tang & Nevins (In. prep).
