From ICE to ICC: The new International Comparable Corpus

  • This paper outlines the broad research context and rationale for a new international comparable corpus (ICC). The ICC is to be largely modelled on the text categories and their quantities the International Corpus of English with only a few changes. The corpus will initially begin with nine European languages but others may join in due course. The paper reports on those and other agreements made at the inaugural planning meeting in Prague on 22-23 June 2017. It also sets out the project’s goals for its first two years.
