This is a dataset of recordings and transcriptions of spoken English collected from a range of university classrooms. UNITALK is a modest-sized untagged synchronic specialized full-text corpus of spoken academic discourse collected from fifteen university classrooms. UNITALK was designed to study the genre of small group teaching contexts across academic divisions and subject disciplines and specifically designed to study those teaching events whose goal is to work on collaborative ideas or tasks. The corpus is over 100,000 words and can be used to investigate academic language use and small group university teaching and learning contexts.
