Title:PAROLE Irish Distributable Corpus
Abstract:This corpus consists of over 8 million words The text is marked-up in accordance with the PAROLE encoding standard. All the files are in SGML format with a detailed header and the body of the text tagged to paragraph level. A subset of the corpus is morpho-syntactically tagged. Included in this distribution is approximately 3,000 manually checked words.

Description:Written Corpora
The PAROLE Irish Distributable Corpus consists of over 8 million words (a subset of the 15+ million words Irish Reference corpus). The text is marked-up in accordance with the PAROLE encoding standard which incorporates the Corpus Encoding Standard (CES) and Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines. All the files are in SGML format with a detailed header and the body of the text tagged to paragraph level. The header includes information such as title, author(s), number of words, ownership, publication details and also a standard coding for Medium, Topic and Genre categories. A subset of the Distributable Corpus is morpho-syntactically tagged. Included in this distribution is approximately 3,000 manually checked words. *** Introduction on the PAROLE project LE-PAROLE project (MLAP/LE2-4017) aims to offer a large-scale harmonised set of "core" corpora and lexica for all European Union languages. Language corpora and lexica were built according to the same design and composition principles, in the period 1996-1998. PAROLE Corpora: The harmonisation with respect to corpus composition (selection of corpus texts) was to be achieved by the obligatory application of common parameters for time of production and classification according to publication medium. No texts older than 1970 were allowed. As for publication medium, the corpus had to include specific proportions of texts from the categories ?Book?, ?Newspaper?, ?Periodical? and ?Miscellaneous? within a settled range. The harmonisation effort also applied to the textual and linguistic encoding of the language corpora involved. With respect to the mark up of text structure and primary data, every single corpus text was to be encoded according to the PAROLE DTD, which is compatible with the DTD of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and with that of the Corpus Encoding Standard (CES). The level of encoding was set to Level 1 of the CES, implying the encoding of text structure and textual features up to Paragraph Level, with the additional constraint, however, that all legacy data was kept. As for linguistic corpus annotation, an equal proportion of the corpus texts (up to 250,000 running words) was to be morphosyntactically annotated according to a common core PAROLE tagset, extended with a set of language specific features. The checking of the tags was split in two: 50,000 words had to be checked for maximum granularity and 200,000 for part-of-speech (PoS) only. The languages involved in PAROLE corpora are: Belgian French, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, French, Finnish, German, Greek, Irish, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese and Swedish. PAROLE Lexica: The lexica (20,000 entries per language) were built conform to a model based on EAGLES guidelines and GENELEX results, underlying a common lexical tool adapted from the EUREKA-GENELEX project. This software tool was extended to support the PAROLE model and conversion and management processes of the resulting resources. The languages involved in PAROLE lexica are: Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.
