Get to know the Language Bank of Finland

The quickest way to explore the Language Bank’s services is to try the Korp interface where many of our corpora are deposited and can be queried without logging in or applying for access rights of the language resources. Korp features e.g. the Suomi 24 discussion forum corpus that is interesting from the points of view of several digital humanities and social sciences.

Other good ways to begin are the Newspaper and Periodical Corpus of the National Library of Finland and the Plenary Sessions of the Parliament of Finland, which are also available for download in addition to Korp.
