The Language Bank of Finland (Kielipankki) is a collection of services for researchers who use language materials in their work. The Language Bank offers a wide collection of text and speech corpora on which researchers and students can run versatile queries. It is also possible to study and process materials using the tools available in the Language Bank or to download materials to your local computer. Many of the corpora in the Language Bank of Finland are openly available, some of them require you to log in with your university credentials. Access rights to restricted materials can be applied online. Regular use of the Language Bank of Finland is free for researchers and students.
The services of the Language Bank of Finland are maintained and developed by FIN-CLARIN, a consortium of Finnish universities and research organizations coordinated by the University of Helsinki. Researchers and research groups can deposit their language materials with FIN-CLARIN for redistribution. FIN-CLARIN is part of the international research infrastructure consortium CLARIN ERIC.
