Corpus of Lower Sorbian

DOTKO (DOlnoserbski Tekstowy KOrpus) is a diachronic corpus of Lower Sorbian, being built at the Cottbus (Chóśebuz) branch of the Sorbian Institute. It largely consists of the Bramborski Casnik texts (a Lower Lusatian newspaper) from 1848–1933. Some of these texts have not yet been proofread; they are usually presented in the original spelling without lemmata and morphological tags, which may complicate querying the corpus.

For further details about the corpus please refer to the webpage

DOTKO is a non-reference corpus that is planned to be continuously improved, extended and updated in the future. Another notice relates to its availability: for technical reasons, the DOTKO corpus is not included in the standard corpus list for Bonito 1; it is only available via the web interface.
