skTenTen: Corpus of the Slovak Web

The Slovak Web Corpus (skTenTen) is a language corpus made up of texts collected from the Internet. The corpus belongs to the TenTen corpus family which is a set of the web corpora built using the same method with a target size 10+ billion words. Sketch Engine currently provides access to TenTen corpora in more than 30 languages.

Data was crawled by the SpiderLing web spider in 2011 and comprised of almost 715 million words. Apart from the standard word, tag, lemma attributes, the corpus also contains an extra attribute called amblevel which is an integer number indicating the level of ambiguity of each word form. It is the number of possible POS-tags for given word form (from which the disambiguator selected one). Word sketches have been prepared by  Vladimír Benko.

Detailed information about TenTen corpora is on the separate page Common TenTen corpora attributes.

Part-of-speech tagset

The skTenTen corpus was POS annotated by Ľ. Štúr Institute of Linguistics of  Slovak Academy of Sciences with the same tagset from the National Slovak corpus.
