Abstract

The EMILLE/CIIL Corpus consists of three components: monolingual, parallel and annotated corpora. There are fourteen monolingual corpora, including both written and (for some languages) spoken data for fourteen South Asian languages: Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Sinhala, Tamil, Telegu and Urdu. The EMILLE monolingual corpora contain approximately 92,799,000 words (including 2,627,000 words of transcribed spoken data for Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu). The parallel corpus consists of 200,000 words of text in English and its accompanying translations in Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Gujarati and Urdu. The annotated component includes the Urdu monolingual and parallel corpora automatically annotated for parts-of-speech, together with twenty written Hindi corpus files annotated to show the nature of demonstrative use. All other components are annotated at the sentence level. The corpus is marked up using CES-compliant SGML and encoded using Unicode.
