McEnery, A. M. and Xiao, R. Z. (2004) The Lancaster Corpus of Mandarin Chinese:A corpus for monolingual and contrastive language study. In: LREC. .Full text not available from this repository.
This paper presents the newly released Lancaster Corpus of Mandarin Chinese (LCMC), a Chinese match for the FLOB and Frown corpora of British and American English. LCMC is a one-million-word balanced corpus of written Mandarin Chinese. The corpus contains five hundred 2,000-word samples of written Chinese texts sampled from fifteen text categories published in Mainland China around 1991, totalling one million words. LCMC is XML-compliant and conforms to CES, with each document containing a corpus header giving general information about the corpus and a body of text. The corpus is segmented and POS tagged with a tagging precision rate of over 98%. The corpus is a useful resource for research into modern Chinese as well as the cross-linguistic contrast between English and Chinese.
