Spanish in Texas Corpus

A Linguistic Map of Texas

The goal of this project is to develop a pedagogically useful corpus of Spanish and bilingual Spanish-English speech samples culled from interviews and conversations among speakers of diverse personal profiles and regional origins throughout Texas. The videos will be accompanied by instructional materials for specific levels (elementary, middle school, high school, and college) for use in mainstream Spanish language classrooms and dual-language immersion programs, as well as in Social Studies and Language Arts curricula. The instructional materials will be made available on an open website for teachers, students, and the general public.
