Resource families


The aim of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative is to provide a user-friendly overview of the available language resources in the CLARIN infrastructure for researchers from digital humanities, social sciences and human language technologies. The overviews are organized according to the types of data in the resources and include listings sorted by language.

The listings include the most important metadata and brief descriptions, such as resource size, text sources, time periods, annotations and licences as well as links to download pages and concordancers, whenever available. In addition to the resources found in the CLARIN infrastructure we provide an overview of other existing valuable language resources which have not yet been integrated in the infrastructure.

We also provide hyperlinks to other relevant materials such as the thematic CLARIN workshops and tutorials and their accompanying videolectures, as well as a list of key publications on the resources surveyed.

We currently offer overviews of 12 corpora families, 5 families of lexical resources, and 4 tool families:

The overviews have been prepared by Darja Fišer and Jakob Lenardič and have received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme for projects CLARIN-PLUS, PARTHENOS and SSHOC. We would like to thank all the User Involvement coordinators, National Coordinators, workshop participants and other individuals who have participated in the survey and have provided information about the resources.
