This paper describes a new database that we are constructing for speech translation research. A goal of the research is to develop a system capable of handling spontaneous utterances. The database is composed of three parts. The main one is an integrated speech and language database, which this paper mainly focuses. The basic approach for the database and its specific features are described. The other two, a speech database and a language database, supplement the main one. Brief descriptions about them also appear.
