About The Corpora
HC corpora is a collection of corpora for various languages
freely available to download.

of current use of the respective language.

Planned future corpora:
I'm planning to collect corpora for many more languages, but the above
ones, are the ones I have planned specifically for.
if you are interested in any other languages you can contact

assigning the language a higher priority.
In addition to the large corpora I am also collecting corpora for a number of
small languages. These are languages that do not have a lot of native speakers
(small countries or minority languages) or do not have a lot of online availability
(e.g. some 3rd world languages) and thus the corpora will not be of the
same size and variety as the larger languages. These will be uploaded as they
