Research Infrastructure

Institut für Corpuslinguistik und Texttechnologie (ICLTT) - Corpuscluster

Description The ICLTT holds a large number of digital resources, at the core of which is the Austrian Academy Corpus. The vast bulk of this corpus dates from the first half of the 20th century. Currently, the corpus consists of about 500m tokens and most of the texts contained in the collection do not strictly belong to the sphere of what traditionally would be described as belles lettres. As the texts were collected with a socio-historic, literary and lexicographic perspective, the corpus also contains a considerable amount of functional and informational texts. Roughly half of the data is made up of periodicals, not large size daily newspapers, but rather medium and small size weekly and monthly publications. There are many collective publications such as yearbooks, readers, commemorative publications, almanacs and anthologies which, in themselves, cover a wide range of writers, topics, types of texts and genres. The Austrian Academy Corpus is continually being enhanced and improved. The range of research questions being dealt with on basis of this vast pool of data is as diverse and manifold as the contents of the corpus. Currently, the ICLTT's corpora are undergoing a renewed phase of refinement. All the texts contained in the Austrian Academy Corpus are being converted to TEI P5, a process which demanded considerable conceptual groundwork. In addition, the texts will be reindexed and furnished with a multi-layer standoff annotation. Participation in regional, European and international RI due to the European Roadmap for Research Infrastructures, such as CLARIN and DARIAH; preservation and interpretation of cultural heritage. The ICLTT-CC is furthermore the CONTENT basis for all research and applications in the context of linguistics and text technology, in particular within the description and use of the German language in Austria, but also designed for many other investigations, e.g. philological and cultural studies, contemporary historical research. In contrast to the majority of research infrastructures in the IT sector, this CORPUS CLUSTER had an academic genesis.
