MTP - Corpus allemand - version non étiquetée
This morphosyntactically annotated 500,000 word German corpus was developed as part of the Münster Tagging Project (MTP). It comprises a collection of SGML-formatted texts from two German newspapers, "Die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" and "Die Zeit", for the years 1990 to 1992. The articles reflect the typical distribution of newspaper topics, including economics, regional, national and international politics, the arts, sport, literature, history, science and modern life.
The text was segmented into sentence units and word tokens, and tagged for morphosyntactic POS markers. Two tagsets, which mainly differed in the granularity of the noun and verb tags, and which comprised 137 and 52 tags respectively, were used. Users may obtain annotated versions using either set, each of which comes with documentation and an instruction manual for tag application. A suite of tools, including the MTP taggers and the Xlex workbench for text handling, textual analysis and lexicography, is also available.
