Map charting progress
CorCenCC researchers have travelled all across Wales to collect spoken data by recording in several locations and events. From the tip of the Lleyn Peninsula in Gwynedd to the cities of Cardiff and Swansea, we aim to capture how Welsh is truly used today in all corners of the country.
This map shows our current progress. The targets for each local authority are calculated from the number of Welsh speakers according to the 2011 Census results. The colours show our progress towards each individual target.
How do I contribute materials to the corpus?
It is now possible to contribute written, digital or spoken materials to the corpus via the web. Go to app.corcencc.org to register and to upload your files – e.g. audio or video recordings, or materials you have written such as Word/PDF documents or emails. For more information, please contact: CorCenCC@Cardiff.ac.uk
You can also contribute spoken data via the CorCenCC app (now available for Android and Apple devices).
Or perhaps you’d like to contribute some of your Welsh text messages? Follow the instructions here:
How do I contribute spoken language to the corpus?
We have developed a mobile phone app which will enable those who own an Apple or Android device to record and send us their spoken language (click here for more details). You can also contribute spoken and written data via the web (see How do I contribute materials to the corpus?).
Is there a limit to how much I can contribute to the corpus?
There are no minimum or maximum set limits to how much you can contribute to the corpus.
Will corpus users be able to identify me by reading the materials I contribute?
Unless you give us prior permission to include your name, you as an author will not be identifiable from your text, because to protect the identity of contributors to the corpus and individuals mentioned within it, all content will be fully anonymized.
Will you be publishing a list of contributors on the site?
In general, the identity of CorCenCC Community members will not be published, however, if you want to be named as a contributor for posterity, please do let us know and we will publish your name on this site.
