GermaParl Corpus of Plenary Protocols (German Bundestag)


The GermaParl Corpus has been prepared in the PolMine Project and comprises all protocols of plenary sessions in the German Bundestag (1996 - 2013). The corpus includes the speeches that were actually given in the German Bundestag. Speeches that were only included in the printed protocol but that were not delivered are not yet part of corpus preparation.

This version of the corpus is based on plain text documents issued by the German Bundestag. For a period between 2008 and 2010, txt files are not available. To fill the gap, pdf documents were processed.

As part of the corpus preparation pipeline, the data has been linguistically annotated (using the treetagger) and imported into the Corpus Workbench (CWB).

See the GermaParl documentation website for further information.


The data comes with a CLARIN PUB+BY+NC+SA license, as an explanation of the license, see CLARIN licenses.
