Wanca 2016

Wanca 2016 is a collection of web corpora in small Uralic languages. The collection is composed of 29 sentence corpora in different languages. The corpora have been collected from the Internet using the automated system developed in the Finno-Ugric Languages and the Internet project (SUKI) supported by the Kone foundation from their Language Programme 2012-2016. The sentences have been extracted from the pages found while harvesting with Heritrix and the language of each sentence has been identified with MultiLi using HeLI as the identification method. Each sentence has a link to the original page it was found in, but it is possible that some of the links stop working. In that case we recommend searching for the page in the Internet Archive Wayback machine https://archive.org/web/.
