This DIAZ corpus contains Adult Spanish L2 oral data of Indoeuropean and Asian Learners, both semi-spontaneous and experimental, obtained in Barcelona, Spain under the umbrella of a research project supervised by Dr. Lourdes Díaz Rodríguez (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain), and funded by the Spanish Government. A parallel set of data was gathered in Ottawa, in instructed FL setting (no immersion in the language) under the supervision of Prof. J.M. Liceras.
All data in this set were gathered in Barcelona among learners of L2/L3 Spanish who volunteered. All were interviewed by consent at school (EOI) and University premises (UPF). Their production was audio-taped and later transcribed at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain. The research team that has taken part in the different intervals of data gathering consisted of: P. Álvarez; K. Bekiou; A. Bel; M. Bini; A. Blanco; P. Deza; R. Fernández Fuertes; B. Laguardia; J. A. Redó; E. Rosado; G. Feliu; A.Ruggia and L. Díaz.
The research reported was supported by grants from the Spanish Ministerio de Educación, and Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación to Dr. Lourdes Díaz Rodríguez from 1995-2000, namely: PB94-1096-C02-01; BFF2000-0928; HUM2006-10235.
