The annotation of a speech corpus denotes all symbolic8.1 information that is directly related to the speech signal, either via the physical time scale, in which case we speak of a segmentation and labeling, or via some semantic content of the speech signal, in which case we speak of a transcription or tagging.

For an in-depth discussion about annotation of speech corpora refer to [2], pp. 146 - 161.
