  • Access for corpus linguistic analyses:
    The Alpenwort corpus is available in different formats and can be accessed via different protals. A corpus isn’t a fulltext, this means not the whole book or article can be viewed. Rather corpus access is intended for extensive research and statistical analyses. Different search and analysis methods are available: text search, POS-tag-search, keywords, collocations etc.
