Wikicorpus, v. 1.0: Catalan, Spanish and English portions of the Wikipedia.

The Wikicorpus contains portions of the Catalan, Spanish, and English
Wikipedias based on a 2006 dump. The corpora have been automatically tagged
with lemma and part of speech information using the open source library
FreeLing. Also, they have been WordNet-sense annotated with the state of
the art Word Sense Disambiguation algorithm UKB. In its current version,
the corpora have the following sizes:

* Catalan: around 50 million words
* Spanish: around 120 million words
* English: around 600 million words

We provide access to the corpora in their raw text and tagged versions,
under the same license as Wikipedia itself. To our knowledge, these are the
largest Catalan and Spanish corpora freely available for download. For more
information and download, please visit the project's page:


Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics
