  • The downloadable versions of the corpora offered via the Language Bank (listed above) essentially include the same content that was available via the online service at https://www.english-corpora.org at the time of acquiring the corpora.
  • In addition to the specific downloadable versions corpora (listed above), an academic license is available for students and staff at the University of Helsinki for using the online services for accessing corpora at https://www.english-corpora.org.  The academic license is valid during the years 2022–2026 for logged-in students and faculty members at the University of Helsinki. Instructions for joining the academic license are provided below.
  • Please note that the corpus service at english-corpora.org is not part of FIN-CLARIN or the Language Bank of Finland.
NB: In case you only wish to use the downloadable corpora via the Language Bank of Finland, you do not need to complete the academic license procedure below. Note that the downloadable versions of the corpora will remain for download in the Language Bank even after the academic license to use the online service has expired.
