Polish language of the XX century sixties

This site is dedicated to the corpus of frequency dictionary of contemporary Polish. The original purpose of the corpus was to create a general frequency dictionary of contemporary Polish. The work started in 1967. Partial results were published between 1972 and 1977, the completed dictionary in 1990. The corpus was later augmented in various respects, both by manual editing and automated procedures.

Corpus data contain 10,000 samples divided into 5 parts: essays, news, scientific texts, fiction and plays. Every sample is approximately 50 words long, they all come from texts published between 1963 and 1967 and contain bibliographic description of its source. Each word is tagged with its base form and some morphological properties. Sentence boundaries are also marked.

In 2001 corpus authors agreed to publish the data in the Internet under GNU licence. This site presents corpus data in base and extended (enhanced) version as well as additional materials and corpus documentation.
