    Subject: Annotated corpus of Old English prose


    The York-Toronto-Helsinki Parsed Corpus of Old English Prose (YCOE), a 1.5 million word syntactically-annotated corpus of Old English prose texts created at the University of York (England), is now available. As a sister corpus to the Penn-Helsinki Parsed Corpus of Middle English (http://www.ling.upenn.edu/mideng/), it uses the same form of annotation and is accessed by the same search engine, CorpusSearch. The corpus itself (the annotated text files) is distributed by the Oxford Text Archive (http://ota.ahds.ac.uk). It is freely available for non-commercial use. Information about the corpus and all the associated documentation can be viewed on the web at: http://www-users.york.ac.uk/~lang22/YcoeHome1.htm. The corpus was created with a grant from the English Arts and Humanities Research Board (B/RG/AN5907/APN9528). Please direct any mail about the corpus to Ann Taylor at9york.ac.uk
