Abstract

The rapid growth in availability of high-quality recordings of natural spoken dialogue (and natural spoken material more generally) has encouraged us to to improve the interchange of transcripts of such material, in order that these resources be easy to exploit by the scientific community as a whole. In this paper, we describe a new SGML architecture which we have recently adopted for the HCRC Map Task corpus (a corpus of spontaneous task-oriented dialogues) with precisely these issues in view. This architecture is oriented towards ease of processing and update.
