Message 1: Czech National Corpus

Subject: Czech National Corpus

In November 2000, a 100-million representative corpus of written Czech,
called SYN2000, has been officially released for non-commercial use. 

It is a major part of the Czech National Corpus project which consists of 
other minor corpora, too, and which will be gradually released as well. 
SYN2000 is basically a contemporary modern corpus (where, for example, 
newspaper texts date from 1991-1999), which is planned for a many-sided 
research, dictionary-makers etc. An access to it can be negotiated, 
against signing a written statement, free of charge through the address which serves also as a web address with some 
additional information. Next to this, the same address offers a public 
access to some 20 million of the large corpus in a somewhat limited way, 
too. An accompanying book about the Czech National Corpus, containg a 
Manual for using SYN200, which has just come out, is available from the 
Institute of the Czech National Corpus who is responsible for the corpora 
developed under the project.
