Cardiff University is leading a collaborative research project (with Swansea, Bangor and Lancaster Universities) which aims to build CorCenCC: The National Corpus of Contemporary Welsh. A corpus is a collection of spoken, written and digital language data that can help provide a snapshot of language as it is used in ‘real-life’ situations.

The intention is for the CorCenCC corpus to be made freely available online on an open-source basis as a searchable computerised database to anyone wishing to have access to it.

Please note:

If you have any questions, queries or problems about any of this, please contact: CorCenCC@cardiff.ac.uk. More information about the project can be found on the CorCenCC website: http://sites.cardiff.ac.uk/corcencc/.


Use of my contributions:

The expression “my contributions” means any sound/video recordings, literary, dramatic and other copyright works which feature me and/or are created by me and/or any performance by me of any recordings, literary, dramatic and other copyright works. I acknowledge that the CorCenCC corpus will be of benefit to me and I grant to Cardiff University and its successors, licensees and assignees the right to access my sound/video recordings and/or written and/or digital texts and all associated metadata (i.e. data about data), to include my contributions (which may be transcribed and/or re-recorded (in the case of recordings) and/or edited and/or combined with other materials) in the CorCenCC corpus, and to use and make available for use the CorCenCC corpus and/or any part of it by any means worldwide for the full period of copyright in my contributions.

I give and confirm to Cardiff University and its successors, licensees and assignees all performers’ consents and all other consents legally required to authorise the use of my contributions in the way stated above.

I waive (agree not to enforce) all moral rights to which I am or may in future be entitled in respect of the use of my contributions in the way stated above. (Moral rights include the right to be named as the author of contributions, the right not to be named as the author of other people’s contributions and the right to object to changes to contributions – it would be difficult to use contributions in the CorCenCC corpus if these rights were enforced.)

I declare that:
