Dynamic Dialects contains an articulatory video-based corpus of speech samples from world-wide accents of English. Videos in this corpus contain synchronised audio, ultrasound-tongue-imaging video and video of the moving lips.
Eighteenth-Century Borrowing from the University of Glasgow
This site allows users to work with images and data from the three registers that record student borrowings from Glasgow University Library during the period between March 1757 and January 1771.
Exhibition Culture in London 1878-1908
The project documents the commercial and artist led world of the London gallery beyond major institutions such as the Royal Academy and records over 3,000 exhibitions and 900 galleries in London between 1878 and 1908.
The resource provides ultrasound tongue imaging (UTI) and lip video of speech, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) video of speech, and 2D midsagittal head animations based on MRI and UTI data.
The Historical Thesaurus of English
The University of Glasgow’s Historical Thesaurus of English is a unique resource charting the development of meaning in the huge and varied vocabulary of English. It consists of almost every recorded word in English from Anglo-Saxon times to the present day, all arranged into detailed hierarchies of meaning.
The People's Voice
The project examined the neglected impact that local poetry and song cultures had on Scottish popular politics in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and features a database of songs and a collection of audio recordings.
