British National Corpus


Description:

A 100 million word snapshot of British English, both spoken and written, at the end of the 20th century, containing over 4,000 text extracts selected to represent the full variety of the language.

The corpus is distributed in compressed form as a tar archive, in TEI format with an additional special-purpose index for use with the SARA retrieval program. It can be used under Unix (networked) or Windows (standalone). The DTD is TEI-conformant, with some modifications (see http://www.natcorp.ox.ac.uk/World/HTML/compat.html for details).
