Dear collegues,

the TIGER project is pleased to announce the second release of the TIGER Corpus. The treebank
consists of app. 900,000 tokens (50,000 sentences) of German newspaper text. It was
semi-automatically tagged with part-of-speech, syntactic structures and - in addition to the first
release - morphological information.

For details about the TIGER Corpus (download, documentation etc.), see:

We provide the corpus for scientific use for free.
