Cooperation

The project was carried out in cooperation with a research group in Sweden (headed by Bengt Altenberg and Karin Aijmer) and with a similar research team in Finland (University of Jyväskylä). The aim of the cooperation with other contrastive teams, was to facilitate multilingual comparison. There were also important gains in corpus compilation.

The tagging of the original English texts was done by Atro Voutilainen, Researcher at the Research Unit for Multilingual Language Technology, Department of General Linguistics, University of Helsinki.

The dialogue marking in the original fiction texts in both languages was carried out by Berit Løken.
