tlTenTen: Corpus of the Tagalog Web

The Tagalog Web Corpus (tlTenTen) is a Tagalog 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 Tagalog language is an Austronesian language spoken by a part of the population in the Philippines. A standardized variety of Tagalog is the Filipino language. Texts for the corpus were crawled from the web during June–July 2018 and February 2019 and they contain both Tagalog and Filipino. Thus this Tagalog Web corpus is also the Filipino corpus.

Part-of-speech tagset

The tlTenTen English corpora were tagged by Stanford parser using MGNN tagset with Sketch Engine modifications.
