About the corpora and other material

The Institute is an expert on linguistic corpora, and it cooperates with other parties to promote the documentation of the languages of Finland and to build a solid infrastructure for linguistic research in Finland. The linguistic corpora are the Institute’s way of passing on our linguistic heritage to future generations.

With regard to the archives and corpora, the Institute adheres to the principles of openness and transparency. Our customers have free access to almost all archive resources, and as many of our corpora as possible are available online and free of charge.
