This chapter describes the construction of the Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (NECTE), a legacy corpus based on data collected for two sociolinguistic surveys conducted on Tyneside in the north-east of England in c. 1969 and 1994 respectively. It focusses on transcription issues relevant for addressing research questions in phonetics/phonology. There is also discussion of the rationale for the text encoding systems adopted in the corpus construction phase as well as the dissemination strategy employed since completion in 2005.
