World Media Englishes

Up and until 2017, Red Hen mainly captured English news from the United States, the United Kingdom and International Services from non-English-speaking countries (Russia Today, Deutsche Welle, Al Jazeera, ...). With the establishment in 2018 of our first capture station on the Indian subcontinent, we have started our collection of World Media Englishes, which has taken up speed with the exploitation of the online outlets of various broadcasting companies all over the world. We are currently building further corpora of African Englishes (starting with Nigeria and Kenya) and will soon extend our efforts to more Asian varieties of English as well. Stay tuned for more information! If you would like to learn more or contribute to the project, please get in touch with Peter Uhrig.
