The www version of Sinica Early Chinese Corpus was open to research community in November, 2001. Literature available for searching is "Hong-lou-mong" and "San-sui-ping-yao-zhuan". Although the searching function and criteria for segmentation and tagging are mostly the same with Sinica Corpus for modern Chinese, it has its own features as well. For example, while the searching result provides the part-of-speech with the lemma, the source of the cited sentence is also given. This feature helps researchers on the reference. Besides, for the segmentation and tagging standard, some changes are also made because of the different focus from the standard for analyzing modern language. For instance, the verb-complement structure is labelled more detailed in our Sinica Early Chinese Corpus.
Scholarly Exchange and Institute of History and Philology in Academia Sinica. The objective was only to collect the raw text at that time. Ever since, the colletion for raw corpus has never stopped. The collected data has entended from Primitive Chinese to Medieval Chinese and Early Chinese. The work of collection is mainly managed by Prof. Pei-Chuang Wei and is founded by Academia Sinica. The tagging of Primitive Chinese data started in 1995. For Early Chinese, the tagging system was designed in 1997 and applied immediately. The project of Early Chinese was led by Prof. Pei-Chuang Wei and Prof. Cheng-hui Liu (Hsing-Hua University) The financial support came from Academia Sinica and National Science Council; technical support on tagging system and computer science were provided by Prof. Chu-Ren Huang, Prof. Ker-Jiann Chen, and ASCC.
