|Description||"The main objective of the project was to fill a gap in the market of historical corpora, which lacked a balanced corpus with complete texts for text-linguistic and stylistic analysis. The time-span selected for the corpus was 1640 to 1740, as this appeared to be a highly interesting one in terms of both language change and historical developments during the period." The Century is divided into ten decades. "Each decade consists of six domains, i.e. Religion; Politics; Economy & Trade; Science; Law; Miscellaneous. Two texts per domain within each decade, leading to 120 different texts, amounting to c. 1.1 million words."|
