Abstract [en]

This article describes an electronic resource containing speech-related texts from the Early Modern English period. The resource in question is A Corpus of English Dialogues 1560-1760, a 1.2-million-word corpus comprising five genres: trial proceedings, witness depositions, drama comedy, prose fiction, and didactic works. The first two genres comprise records taken down in authentic speech situations, and the other genres represent dialogue constructed by known or anonymous authors. After discussing methodological preliminaries, we explain how the corpus is structured. We then describe the properties of the genres included in the corpus and illustrate them by commenting on extracts drawn from the corpus texts. After introducing the research carried out so far on the basis of the material, we conclude by describing the different versions of the corpus available to end users.
