C4

Description

C4 is a distributed corpus of German language with a focus on its pluricentric character. It was created in the years 2004 – 2008 and is being maintained by research groups from Basel, Berlin, Bozen and Vienna, representing four varietes of German.

C4 was an international initiative with a two-fold purpose. For one, it aimed to deliver a corpus of German language with a focus on its pluricentric character. At the same time, it was an early technical experiment exploring the possibility of setting up a distributed corpus search system.
