The Timestamped JSI web corpus was tagged for parts of speech and the timestamps were used to augment the corpus with diachronic annotation. Currently, the corpus covers the time period of 2014 and 2017. By combining this data with other web corpora, a total period of between 2009 and 2015 can be covered. There are now regular monthly updates from Jozef Stefan Institute and regularly amend the corpus with the latest data.
The diachronic annotation is extremely valuable in connection with Sketch Engine and its trends feature. The trends feature analyses the frequency of the use of a word in time by comparing the frequency of use across a series of comparable time periods.
The corpus is accessible to all users including trial users.
