Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need additional assistance.


Linguistic Corpora

Every year there are more and more freely available corpora available. Here are some of the big ones. If you don't see something here that fits your needs, please talk to your professor or to Iris Jastram.

Large Text Collections

Here are the collections most commonly used on campus for document corpora. Talk to Iris about methods of developing the corpus you need.

There's more

The library has several large text collections available "behind the scenes." Sometimes when we purchase online collections, the vendors send us hard drives of the text for storage and analysis. If you have a particular text collection in mind to study, contact Iris Jastram to talk about availability and options.
