Within the framework of this project, ICNC strives for extensive and continuous data coverage of the Czech language (and other languages in comparison with Czech) aiming thus to build up a foundation for basic and applied research. The main activities include:

  • continuous development and building of language corpora of various types as representative, linguistically processed textual bases for empirical and exact research of the Czech language; these are primarily corpora covering Czech in its present state (synchronic corpora of written and spoken language), in its historical development (diachronic corpus), and in translation comparison with other languages (parallel corpora);
    continuous development and enhancement of structural and specialized linguistic annotation of language corpora;
  • complex processing of other corpora compiled by other research groups in the Czech Republic and abroad;
  • free and open public service of providing internet user access to all corpora by the means of specialized corpus tools;
  • providing of data packages (i.e. processed and annotated collections of language data) to other research groups in the Czech Republic as well as abroad, in various formats according to their needs and suitable especially for linguistic research and natural language processing.
