Description:
*Introduction* This collection consists of 30 hours of transcripts of Mandarin Chinese broadcast news recordings from the following sources: Voice of America (VOA), China Central TV (CCTV) and KAZN-AM, a commercial radio station based in Los Angeles, CA. Of these three sources, the first two comprise the bulk of the collection and are represented in roughly equal amounts. Only a relatively small sample of KAZN-AM recordings is included, owing to the relatively high proportion of unusable material in that source(e.g., commercials, local traffic reports). Corresponding audio files are released as 1997 Mandarin Broadcast News Speech (HUB4-NE) LDC98S73. *Data* The transcripts were created by native speakers of Mandarin working at LDC. They are in GB-encoded form with SGML tags to identify story boundaries, speaker turn boundaries and phrasal pauses. The tags include time stamps to align the text with the speech data. Word segmentation (white-space between words) is included. A working DTD is provided, and the markup is consistent with that of the 1997 English and Spanish HUB4 collections. *Updates* There are no updates at this time. *Pricing* The Reduced Licensing Fee for this corpus is US$100.
