UCLA Written Chinese Corpus (UCLA2)

Taxonomy :

The UCLA Written Chinese Corpus is designed as a Chinese counterpart for the FLOB and Frown corpora of British and American English for contrastive research, as well as a recent update of the Lancaster Corpus of Mandarin Chinese (LCMC) for diachronic studies of possible changes in written Chinese over the past decade. Since this period is of special significance because of the impact of the Internet on language, especially on Chinese, the corpus is an excellent complement to LCMC.
