This collaborative project aims to create a new annotation framework that is geared towards doing (narrower) transcription of the core characteristics of intonation, in a way that maps individual intonational characteristics (such as pitch scaling, pitch alignment, prominence/phrasing, etc.) onto individual labels. This design is intended to facilitate the labelling process and the discovery of (new) systematicities in how acoustic form (characteristics of intonation) and discrete linguistic categories (phonological, morphosyntactic, semantic, etc.) are connected.
Further details, including annotation guidelines, sample transcriptions, and other software tools can be found on the PoLaR website: polarlabels.com.
