Corpus portrait

The Corpus portrait is a tool that allows you to analyse the peculiarities of the corpus and to estimate whether it is suitable for your academic or educational purposes.

You can also learn here how the corpus was created, who worked on it and which ideas are essential for it. 

Corpus header

The corpus header is always shown at the top. It provides high-level information about the corpus.

The header includes information about the corpus size in texts and in words.

All the corpora of the RNC are annotated with tags that allow one to classify them by historical periods, types of texts, orthography, special annotation, etc.

You can open any corpus portrait by clicking the "About the corpus" (i) button in its header.
