The Center for Spoken Language Understanding (CSLU) collects, annotates and distributes telephone speech data to enable research in spoken language understanding and automatic language identification. This paper gives a brief overview of recent activities in pursuit of this mission. We summarize corpus development activities at CSLU and describe new corpora useful for research on specific tasks: alphabet recognition, numbers recognition, large vocabulary word recognition, and yes/no recognition. We then discuss our two newest data collection efforts, Cellular Speech and the 22-Language Telephone Speech Corpus. All CSLU corpora are available at no charge to academic institutions.
