The Transdanubian Electronic Corpus currently places at usersÔÇÖ disposition a limited selection of dialect texts. The range of texts will gradually be expanded until the Corpus encompasses all available materials pertaining to the Bulgarian Transdanubian dialects. In its final version the Corpus will offer texts recorded in the following thirty-eight localities: Afum├í┼úi, At├órn├í┼úi, Breb├ęni-S├ó╠ürbi, B├şla, B─âil├ę┼čti, B─âl├ęni-S├ó╠ürbi, Calomfir├ę┼čti, Caravane╠ü┼úi, Ce├ícu, Chisel├ętu, Chi├íjna, Cioc─ân├ę┼čti, Ci├│plea, Corl─ât├ę┼čti, Cote├ína, Cr├óng├ęni, Dr─âghin├ę┼čti, Hot├írele, Iepur├ę┼čti, Izvo├írele, Jil├íva, Licur├şciu, Milo┼č├ę┼čti, M├ón─âst├şrea, M─âgur├ęle, Pl─ât─âr├ę┼čti, Poi├ína M├íre, Pop├ę┼čti-Leord├ęni, P├║ntea de Gr├ęci, Sp─ât─âr├ęi, Stoen├ę┼čti, T├órg├│vi┼čte, T├órn├íva, Ud├ęni, Urzic├║┼úa, Vl─âd├şla, V├ílea Dr├ígului, V─âr─â╠ü┼čti. When all the texts are incorporated into the Corpus and the scope of inherent linguistic variation is known, the search functions will be refined. For details see section ÔÇťSearchÔÇŁ.
This Corpus is the outcome of many years of selfless commitment and hard work. The contributors to the project are listed in section ÔÇťParticipantsÔÇŁ, with the specific tasks they performed noted in the information box ÔÇťClarifications to the textÔÇŁ (button ). All activities between 2001 and 2013 were coordinated by Dr. Olga Mladenova (University of Calgary, Canada) and Dr. Darina Mladenova (Kliment Ohridski University of Sofia, Bulgaria). Dr. Vesselin Stoykov (Freelance consultant, Sofia, Bulgaria) is responsible for the software and design of the site. The English version of the Corpus was copy-edited by Trent Portigal.
Work on the electronic corpus was sponsored by a research grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
The Transdanubian Electronic Corpus team will be grateful for any constructive critique and suggestions regarding the Corpus that would help to improve it and eliminate the inevitable errors, omissions and inaccuracies.
