Spokes: conversational data search and exploration

Description

Corpora of spontaneous conversational speech are an important source of primary data, not only for linguists, but increasingly also for research in other areas of social sciences and humanities. Spokes is a multimedia search engine for a unique corpus of casual conversational Polish. 
It is currently being developed as part of the Polish CLARIN Infrastructure. By providing tools for data mining and visualization we hope to make this data more easily accessible to researchers interested in exploring samples of naturally-occurring conversational language.
