sqTenTen: Corpus of the Albanian Web

The Albanian Web Corpus (sqTenTen) is an Albanian corpus made up of texts collected from the Internet. The corpus belongs to the TenTen corpus family. Sketch Engine currently provides access to TenTen corpora in more than 40 languages. The corpora are built using technology specialized in collecting only linguistically valuable web content.

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

The Albanian Web 2020 corpus consists of 500+ million words. The texts were downloaded in 2020. The sample texts of the biggest web domains which account for 90% of all corpus texts were checked semi-manually and content with poor quality text and spam was removed.

Part-of-speech tagset

The sqTenTen corpus was tagged by Universal part-of-speech tags. The corpus texts also contain lemmatization when each word form from the corpus is assigned to its base form (lemma). This part of speech tagging and lemmatization was carried out using the Turku neural parser pipeline (available from webarchive).
