Corpus écrit monolingue népalais
The Nepali Monolingual written corpus is one of the 3 resources that constitute the Nepali National Corpus. The Nepali National Corpus was produced in 2006 in the framework of the project Bhasha Sanchar (“language communication”), also known as Nelralec, for Nepali Language Resources and Localization for Education and Communication; funded by the EU Asia IT&C programme, reference number ASIE/2004/091-777.
The Nepali Monolingual written corpus comprises the core corpus (core sample) and the general corpus.
The core sample (CS) represents the collection of Nepali written texts from 15 different genres with 2000 words each published between 1990 and 1992. It is based on FLOB/FROWN corpora and contains 802,000 words.
The general corpus (GC) consists of written texts collected opportunistically from a wide range of sources such as the internet webs, newspapers, books, publishers and authors. It contains 1,400,000 words. This part of the corpus was intended to allow corpus analyses that depend on a very large corpus.
The written corpus is morphogically-annotated. A part-of-speech (POS) tagset has been produced within the project: the Nelralec Tagset. This is a categorisation system for the manual and automated analysis of morphosyntactic units in Nepali.
