Sixth International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
This paper examines the issues that surround the task of creating spoken language resources in the region of Oceania. The geographical extent and fragmented landmass, the linguistic complexity and the economic diversity are presented as highly significant influential features. The parallel interests of linguistic analysts and language technologists are acknowledged and the scope for synergistic collaboration is promoted. Current initiatives are described, prospective initiatives are discussed, and some potentially helpful enabling areas of study are proposed. The benefits of such development to the region is seen in scientific, economic and cultural terms.
