The Language Archive has developed since the late 1990ies from the need to properly preserve valuable linguistic data of different kinds, such as experimental data (including eye-tracking and nowadays brain images) and in particular audio-visual observational data, for instance parent-child interaction in language acquisition or field recordings among speech communities worldwide.

The language data in the archive is described in more detail on the “data archive” page under “resources”.

We offer our archiving service for preserving valuable language-related data at TLA.

Direct access to the archive via the Archive Structure Viewer.
