Cambridge English Corpus – a multibillion-word database by Cambridge University Press

with one comment

The Cambridge English Corpus has been all over the news recently! The Times, Daily Mail, BBC, and the Times of India have all been reporting on how language has changed over the past twenty years, featuring the Corpus.

The Cambridge English Corpus contains examples of written and spoken English from a wide range of sources, including books, newspapers, and recordings of conversations and television  programmes. It includes billions of words, and is a vital record of how the English language is actually used.

The Cambridge Learner Corpus is a part of the Cambridge English Corpus, and contains examples of the English used by language learners taken from actual Cambridge exam scripts. The corpus is used by Cambridge University Press in the design of  exam preparation materials that reflect real English usage and can help students learn from the common mistakes that learners make.
