Title Body
RDM for librarians

Content for a three-hour introductory RDM session for librarians. The course covers:

  • Research data and RDM
  • Data management planning
  • Data sharing
  • Skills

The materials consist of presentation slides and an accompanying handbook.

Wordlists

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

Wordlists are lexical resources which only provide alphabetical or frequency-based lexical inventories. In the vast majority of the cases, the wordlists can be directly downloaded from CLARIN national repositories or queried through easy-to-use online search environments.

Glossaries

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

Glossaries are specialised dictionaries that contain domain-specific terminology and/or expressions. In the vast majority of the cases, the glossaries can be directly downloaded from CLARIN national repositories or queried through easy-to-use online search environments.

Conceptual resources

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

Concept-based resources include onomasiological lexical resources such as wordnets, framenets, thesauri and ontologies. Such resources are typically interlinked with semantic relations (e.g. hypernymy, hyponymy). In the vast majority of the cases, the conceptual resources can be directly downloaded from the national repositories or queried through easy-to-use online search environments.

Dictionaries

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

Dictionaries were primarily created for human use (e.g., language learning/teaching, translation, lexicology) and are typically semasiological, which means that they are organized around words and contain information on their meanings, definitions, pronunciation, etc. 

Lexica

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

Lexica are primarily used in NLP applications. They typically contain an extensive lexical inventory with specific linguistic information (e.g., morphosyntax, sentiment). In the vast majority of the cases, the lexica can be directly downloaded from CLARIN repositories or queried through easy-to-use online search environments.

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.
