ADVICe: Academic discourse verbal interactions corpus

ADVICe is a small (160k) single-genre corpus of spoken university English in New Zealand context. It consists of transcribed and morphologically annotated recordings of advisory sessions (office hours, supervisory meetings etc.) between students and lecturers at the University of Auckland. ADVICe will be of particular interest to researchers focusing on spoken academic discourse in general as well as on particular lexico-grammatical patterns in academic speech.
