CLARIN Resource Families: Newspaper Corpora

Submitted by Linda Stokman on 14 January 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 newspaper corpora. Collections of newspapers in digital form are a rich source of information for researchers in a number of disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences and are especially valuable for synchronic as well as diachronic studies, ranging from history, media and communication studies to lexicography for which newspapers are a rich source of neologisms and other lexicographic phenomena. The CLARIN infrastructure gives access to 33 newspaper corpora, 7 of which are multilingual and 26 monolingual.
