    Abstract

    The Helsinki Corpus of British English Dialects (HD) is a collection of orthographically transcribed audio recorded speech, mainly from East Anglia and the South-West, with a minor collection from Lancashire. The recordings were made in the 1970s and the 1980s by Finnish postgraduates.

    The aim of the corpus is to provide material for linguistic research in the fields of dialectology, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, morphology, syntax and phonology. The corpus also provides material for non-linguistic, multidisciplinary research, such as ethnography of communication, local habits and history.
