Linguistic Data Consortium is a not-for-profit organization within the University of Pennsylvania that supports language-related education, research and technology development by creating and sharing linguistic resources including data, tools and standards.

Since its founding in 1992, LDC has conducted over 45 studies in which we collect examples of linguistic behavior from a large number of participants, while preserving the participants'' anonymity and maximizing the quality, diversity and volume of data available for language-related research. Each study is conducted with oversight from the University of Pennsylvania''s Office of Regulatory Affairs and its Institutional Review Board, whose mission includes the promotion of the rights and welfare of research study participants.

The current Multi-Language study aims to collect thousands of short recordings of informal, conversational speech in many different languages. We are especially interested in languages and dialects that are closely related to one another, including multiple varieties of Spanish, Arabic, French and Chinese. The goal of the project is to deepen our understanding of the differences and similarities between closely related languages and dialects, and to improve the performance of various human language technologies (like automatic language/dialect identification tools) on this type of speech data.



The University of Pennsylvania values diversity and seeks talented students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds. The University of Pennsylvania does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status or any other legally protected class status in the administration of its admissions, financial aid, educational or athletic programs, or other University-administered programs or in its employment practices. Questions or complaints regarding this policy should be directed to the
Executive Director of the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Programs, Sansom Place East, 3600 Chestnut Street, Suite 228, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6106.
