Kick-off meeting of the 2nd phase of the ParlaMint project. Czech is on board!

May 7, 2020

We are extremely please that the very first ParCzech corpus has been published. Its name is ParCzech PS7 1.0 and this TEI encoded corpus consists of the stenographic protocols that record the Chamber of Deputies' (PS) meetings held in the 7th term between 2013–2017.  The audio recordings are available as well. The corpus is automatically enriched with the morphological and named-entity annotations using the procedures MorphoDita and NameTag.


To download the data, please visit the LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ repository:

  • ParCzech PS7 1.0
    • parczech-ps7-1.0-raw.tar.gz (stenoprotocols converted into TEI-derived coding and split into speeches, links to audio files included)
    • parczech-ps7-1.0-annotated.tar.gz(stenoprotocols tokenized and processed by NameTag)
    • parczech-ps7-1.0-audio-DDD.tar (MP3 audiorecordings, DDD stands for the file number, one file may contain stenoprotocols from more than one meeting, but one meeting is not split into more than one archive)
