The FISC corpus

Description

The FISC corpus of Finland Swedish texts has been collected in a project that has been conducted by a consortium comprising:

  • The Department of Scandinavian Languages (University of Helsinki)
  • The Department of General Linguistics (University of Helsinki)
  • The Finnish Research Centre for Domestic Languages

The Department of Scandinavian Languages (Nordica) is the Lead Participant of the consortium. The project started officially at Nordica in August 1991. The kernel corpus of about 2,5 running words was established by the end of 1995.

The texts in the corpus contain embedded tags indicating bibliograhic details, headings, captions, paragrahps and other significant textual features. The tags conform to TEI-recommendations.
