Description:*Introduction* CALLFRIEND Egyptian Arabic was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) and consists of approximately 25 hours of unscripted telephone conversations between native speakers of Egyptian Arabic. The CALLFRIEND series is a collection of telephone conversations in several languages conducted by LDC in support of language identification technology development. Languages covered in the collection include American English, Canadian French, Egyptian Arabic, Farsi, German, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, Tamil and Vietnamese. An updated edition of this corpus is available as CALLFRIEND Egyptian Arabic Second Edition (LDC2019S04). The second edition updates the audio files to wav format, simplifies the directory structure and adds documentation and metadata. *Data* The corpus consists of 60 unscripted telephone conversations, lasting between 5-30 minutes. The corpus also includes documentation describing speaker information (sex, age, education, callee telephone number) and call information (channel quality, number of speakers). For each conversation, both the caller and callee are native speakers of the Egyptian dialect of Arabic. All calls were placed inside the continental United States and Canada. *Samples* Please view this speech sample. *Updates* There are no updates at this time.
