ComCorp – a tool for comparing the linguistic features of corpora


The tool allows for uploading any two corpora (previously zipped) and then for comparing them with regard to the following linguistic features: the presence of specific multiword units, the presence of grammatical tags (according to NKJP tagset), the presence of the vocabulary specific for given corpora, the presence of the vocabulary that differes across the corpora, the presence of proper names, morphosyntactic features of verbs, statistical features of the corpora. The ComCorp tool is also used to detect the linguistic characteristics that are common and different in any two sets of texts.
