Accessing the corpus
The Reference Corpus of Early New High German can be accessed via the corpus query tool ANNIS.
In the drop-down menu “Corpus List/Visible” on the left, the desired subcorpus can be selected. In addition, the selection of “ReF.MLU+RUB” shows all texts that are included in the corpus.
Alternatively, we provide a compressed archive with the individual texts in CorA-XML and TIGER-XML file format. The detailed text overview contains links to PDF versions of the text transcriptions (without annotations). These can also be downloaded here as a single archive.
