ELFA, English as a Lingua Franca in Academic Settings, is a research project in the
Departments of English at the University of Tampere and University of Helsinki in Finland.
The aim of the project is to study academic speech in intercultural contexts, using English as
a lingua franca. The project has compiled a corpus of spoken academic ELF, which is
transcribed and stored in electronic form. The ELFA project is funded by the Academy of Finland.

We are happy to announce that the ELFA corpus is now completed!
See Corpus for more details on the corpus.

a Lingua Franca) currently underway at the University of Helsinki.
