Title A 500 Million Word POS-Tagged Icelandic Corpus
Authors Thomas Eckart, Erla Hallsteinsdóttir, Sigrún Helgadóttir, Uwe Quasthoff and Dirk Goldhahn
Abstract The new POS-tagged Icelandic corpus of the Leipzig Corpora Collection is an extensive resource for the analysis of the Icelandic language. As it contains a large share of all Web documents hosted under the .is top-level domain, it is especially valuable for investigations on modern Icelandic and non-standard language varieties. The corpus is accessible via a dedicated web portal and large shares are available for download. Focus of this paper will be the description of the tagging process and evaluation of statistical properties like word form frequencies and part of speech tag distributions. The latter will be in particular compared with values from the Icelandic Frequency Dictionary (IFD) Corpus.
Topics Part-of-Speech Tagging, Grammar and Syntax
