multicastR: A Companion to the Multi-CAST Collection

Provides a basic interface for accessing annotation data from the Multi-CAST collection, a database of spoken natural language texts edited by Geoffrey Haig and Stefan Schnell. The collection draws from a diverse set of languages and has been annotated across multiple levels. Annotation data is downloaded on request from the servers of the University of Bamberg. See the Multi-CAST website <> for more information and a list of related publications.
