CLARIN Resource Families: Lexica

Submitted by Elisa Gorgaini on 18 June 2021


The CLARIN Resource Families initiative provides a user-friendly overview of the available language resources in the CLARIN infrastructure for researchers from digital humanities, social sciences and human language technologies. 

This month CLARIN highlights Lexica. Lexica are primarily used in applications. They typically contain an extensive lexical inventory with specific linguistic information (e.g., morphosyntax, sentiment). 
There are 80 lexica in the CLARIN infrastructure. Most (65) of the lexica are monolingual, accounting for 17 languages. The rest (15) are multilingual and include a variety of language combinations. In the vast majority of cases, the lexica can be directly downloaded from the national repositories or queried through easy-to-use online search environments.
