SCOPIC Corpus Low German


This collection contains a recording of the Family Problems Picture Task (San Roque et al. 2012) in Low German, a dialect variety of the Lower Rhine area in Germany. The recording forms part of the SCOPIC Project (Social Cognition Parallax Interview Corpus, see as well as Barth & Evans 2017). The goal of SCOPIC is to collect corpus data that are at the same time naturalistic and matched across languages through the use of an interactive problem-solving task.
