The ORATOR corpus contains monologues by native Czech speakers. The typical situations include a lecture, instruction, guided tour, welcome address, sermon etc. The corpus is not balanced in any way. The speech is usually prepared and the speaker has to fit within the given time frame. To our knowledge, there is no corpus with this kind of data available for Czech.

Transcription rules, linking to the corresponding audio track and most metadata follow the ORTOFON and ORAL corpora, structural attributes used in ORATOR are described here (Czech only). The corpus is lemmatized and morphologically tagged in the same way as the ORAL and ORTOFON corpora.

An updated version 2 of this corpus was published in 2020, with more than twice as much data and featuring many small improvements in the consistency of the transcription and in the annotation of the corpus.
