|Oral Archives for Sociolinguistic Research||
The goal of the course in sociolinguistics is to show students the possibilities and challenges offered by oral history archives for (socio)linguistic research. The course is intended as a research framework that will guide students during their future research work. The lectures allow students to become acquainted with the CLARIN infrastructure, and to present them with software tools that will allow them to carry out their own thesis research independently. The course offers guidance for the following steps that must be addressed during a (research) project dealing with oral archives: i) reviewing ethical and legal issues arising from using and reusing legacy data; ii) use of metadata to provide the appropriate level of description for the dataset; iii) automatic and manual transcription of the speech material, using the CLARIN infrastructure; iv) the selection and use of the appropriate CLARIN software and tools depending on the research goals (phonetic, lexical, discourse analysis, etc.).

|Introduction to Speech Analysis||
This course offers a general picture of managing speech corpora and of the methods that are available for the acoustic-phonetic study of speech. During the course, students use a speech analysis program called Praat and learn to apply the main features of the program in their own work with speech recordings. In addition, students will learn the basics of another program called ELAN that can be used for transcribing and annotating audio as well as video material.

|CLARIN Knowledge Sharing||
The aim of the CLARIN Knowledge Sharing Initiative is to ensure ensure that the available knowledge and expertise provided by CLARIN consortia does not exist as a fragmented collection of unconnected bits and pieces, but is made accessible in an organized way to the CLARIN community and to the Social Sciences and Humanities research community at large.
One central step in building the Knowledge Sharing Infrastructure is the establishment of Knowledge Centres. Most existing CLARIN centres are able to get the status of a Knowledge Centre right away; the K-Centres rather formalize and centrally register the existing expertise but does usually not require much additional effort from an institute except that the knowledge-sharing services have to be reliable and their skope has to be made explicit on a dedicated web-page of the respective institute(s).
