Written and Spoken Turkish Corpus Projects

21 Jan

I have just discovered two important projects for Turkish language (thanks to a message on zemberek e-mail group):

METU Spoken Turkish Corpus Project: The aim of METU Spoken Turkish Corpus Project is to construct a linguistically analyzed resource consisting of one million words of face-to-face or mediated interactions in present-day Turkish.

Türkçe Ulusal Derlemi (Turkish National Corpus Project): The web page says that the work is modelled after BNC (British National Corpus) and will be a similar corpus for Turkish language. Hopefully we’ll have it in 2011.

    Yes and hopefully it will be open to everyone, not only academicians, like the METU Turkish Corpus.

      The METU Turkish Corpus is open to everyone, not just academicians. The only limitation is that it is available for research purposes and not for commercial purposes, meaning that anyone can use the corpus as long as they don’t profit from it by reselling the content.

    The Spoken Turkish Corpus, a DEMO Version of which will soon be published by the METU Spoken Turkish Project team, will be freely available to all users for non-commercial research purposes.

    Aynı soruya bir cevap da Barbaros Hayrettin Paşa’nın kendi dilinden katibine yazdırdığı Gazavat-ı Hayrettin Paşa olabilir. 500 yıl önce olmasına rağmen o da gayet anlaşılırdı.
