Title Introducing the Swedish Kelly-list, a new lexical e-resource for Swedish
Authors Elena Volodina and Sofie Johansson Kokkinakis
Abstract Frequency lists and/or lexicons contain information about the words and their statistics. They tend to find their “readers” among language learners, language teachers, linguists and lexicographers. Making them available in electronic format helps to expand the target group to cover language engineers, computer programmers and other specialists working in such areas as information retrieval, spam filtering, text readability analysis, test generation etc. This article describes a new freely available electronic frequency list of modern Swedish which was created in the EU project KELLY. We provide a short description of the KELLY project; examine the methodological approach and mention some details on the compiling of the corpus from which the list has been derived. Further, we discuss the type of information the list contains; describe the steps for list generation; provide information on the coverage and some other statistics over the items in the list. Finally, some practical information on the license for the Swedish Kelly-list distribution is given; potential application areas are suggested; and future plans for its expansion are mentioned. We hope that with some publicity we can help this list find its users.
Topics Lexicon, lexical database, Corpus (creation, annotation, etc.), LR national/international projects, organizational/policy issues
