Database of All Versions of the Spanish Language Coming to Internet in 2011

The first sizeable database of spoken Spanish will be on the Internet in 2011, 15 years after the birth of a unique project of international cooperation in the field of linguistics, in which 17 countries on both sides of the Atlantic have taken part.

The database will reflect the different versions of the spoken Spanish language reflecting pronunciation, grammar and speech differences used by the 450 million people world-wide that speak Spanish. 

The Cervantes Institute of Spain as well as the Royal Spanish Academy sponsored this unique project.
