CORIS/CODIS

Italiano

A corpus of written Italian - CORIS/CODIS is available on-line for research purposes. The project, designed and co-ordinated by R. Rossini Favretti, was started in 1998, with the purpose of creating a representative and sizeable general reference corpus of written Italian which would be easily accessible and user-friendly. CORIS contains 130 million words and has been updated every three years by means of a built-in monitor corpus. It consists of a collection of authentic and commonly occurring texts in electronic format chosen by virtue of their representativeness of modern Italian.

The project is the result of research carried out at the University of Bologna. This has been possible thanks to technological development, the possibility of building on previous experience and the long period of preparatory study that preceded the planning and construction phases.

It is aimed at a broad spectrum of potential users, from Italian language scholars to Italian and foreign students engaged in linguistic analysis based on authentic data and, in a wider prospective, all those interested in intra- and/or interlinguistic analysis.
