Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

Ondertitel:The Oral Corpus of Madrid (CORMA) : materials for the (socio)linguistic study of current colloquial Spanish
CORMA is a corpus of peninsular Spanish including spontaneous conversations recorded in Madrid between 2016 and 2019. The corpus was compiled in order to remedy the scarce documentation of 21st century colloquial Spanish. Indeed, a short overview of the corpora of conversational Spanish shows that there is a sharp contrast between the increasing interest in linguistic phenomena representative of this variety and the availability of suitable empirical data. This paper discusses the different steps that were taken to build the dataset, and presents the main characteristics of the final CORMA corpus. It also includes an illustration of how the data can be successfully exploited through a pilot study of the rise and spread of the intensification marker mazo (de) in young speak since the beginning of the 21st century.
