HZSK

The HZSK is a CLARIN centre that accepts corpora and other linguistic resources from research projects and other contexts in order to make these available mainly to the academic community for research and teaching purposes. The focus of the HZSK is on spoken, multilingual and multimodal corpora, and (spoken) corpora in other languages than German, especially of lesser-recourced or endangered languages.

Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals

Depositing service for corpora of spoken languages which contain a minimum of at least one measured signal that is based on the physical processes of speech production (e.g. acoustic signals, videos, series of measurements, series of pictures).

Parliamentary corpora

This is a list of parliamentary corpora that are available as part of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative.

Parliamentary corpora are a very important multidisciplinary language resource that can be approached from many research perspectives, including not only political science, but also sociology, history, psychology, and applicative approaches to linguistics, for instance, critical discourse analysis. The good availability of parliamentary proceedings in digitized form and granted access rights to public information in the EU countries have motivated a number of national as well as international initiatives to compile, process and analyse parliamentary corpora.

Manually annotated corpora

This is a list of manually annotated corpora that are available as part of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative.

Manual corpora are collections of texts containing manually validated or manually assigned linguistic information, such as morphosyntactic tags, lemmas, syntactic parses, named entities etc. These corpora can be used to train new language annotation tools as well as to test the accuracy of existing annotation tools. 

The corpora and corpus collections are classified into 6 categories based on the type of manual annotation:

Parallel corpora

This is a list of parallel corpora that are available as part of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative.

Parallel corpora are central to translation studies and contrastive linguistics. Many of the parallel corpora are accessible through easy-to-use concordancers which considerably facilitates the study of interlinguistic phenomena. Such corpora are also a rich source of materials for language teaching. Furthermore, parallel corpora serve as training data for statistical machine translation systems. 

Newspaper corpora

This is a list of newspaper corpora that are available as part of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative.

Collections of newspapers in digital form are a rich source of information for researchers in a number of disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences and are especially valuable for synchronic as well as diachronic studies, ranging from history, media and communication studies to lexicography for which newspapers are a rich source of neologisms and other lexicographic phenomena.

Literary corpora

This is a list of literary corpora that are available as part of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative.

Literary corpora comprise poetry and fictional prose texts, such as novels, short stories and plays. They bring together the collected works of a single author or representative from a specific literary period. Since the literary corpora are often available through powerful concordancers, they are especially well suited for a quantitative and qualitative approach to comparative literary analysis, within or across different genres and historical periods.

Historical corpora

This is a list of historical corpora that are available as part of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative.

The CLARIN ERIC infrastructure offers access to historical corpora that cover almost all of the languages spoken in countries that are either members or observers in CLARIN ERIC. In the vast majority of cases, the corpora can be directly downloaded from the national repositories or queried through easy-to-use online search environments. They are also richly tagged and mostly available under public licences.

 

Corpora of academic texts

This is a list of academic corpora that are available as part of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative.

Corpora of academic texts contain scholarly writing, which includes research papers, essays and abstracts published in academic journals, conference proceedings, and edited volumes, theses written by students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and scientific monographs.
