The goal of TalkBank is to foster fundamental research in the study of human communication with an emphasis on spoken communication. Data in TalkBank have been contributed by hundreds of researchers working in over 34 languages internationally who are committed to principles of open data-sharing. Data in TalkBank use a consistent XML-compatible representation called CHAT which facilitates automatic analysis and searching, using open-source and free programs we have developed.
