miTenTen: Corpus of the Māori Web

The Māori Web Corpus (miTenTen) is a Māori corpus made up of texts collected from the Internet. The corpus belongs to the TenTen corpus family which is a set of web corpora built using the same method with a target size 10+ billion words. Sketch Engine currently provides access to TenTen corpora in more than 40 languages.

The corpus data for this Māori Web Corpus include Maori WaC corpus 2013 and crawling of the Māori Web and the Māori Wikipedia in July 2020. The miTenTen corpus has not been part-of-speech tagged and lemmatized yet. Texts were cleaned and deduplicated. The Māori Web corpus is filtered out from machine translation and the other Austronesian languages.

For detailed information about TenTen corpora, see Common TenTen corpora attributes.
