The goal of this project is to maintain a collection of written Hebrew
texts, taken mostly from newspapers, organize them structurally using
XML, and annotate them morphologically (syntactic annotation may
follow in the future). We currently have over 2500 newspaper articles
(mostly from HaAretz, Maariv and Yediot) and over 40,000 short
newswire articles from Arutz 7, totalling over one million word
The texts are annotated morphologically using an automatic
morphological analyzer; two versions of the corpus exist: one in which
each word is assigned all its analyses, and another in which
morphological ambiguity is resolved. We are currently working on a
manually annotated subset of the corpus, whose analyses are
verified. The articles are represented in XML, using dedicated schemas
that we have designed.
