TitleThe EcoLexicon English Corpus as an Open Corpus in Sketch Engine
AbstractThe EcoLexicon English Corpus (EEC) is a 23.1-million-word corpus of contemporary environmental texts. It was compiled by the LexiCon research group for the development of EcoLexicon (Faber, León-Araúz & Reimerink 2016; San Martín et al. 2017), a terminological knowledge base on the environment. It is available as an open corpus in the well-known corpus query system Sketch Engine (Kilgarriff et al. 2014), which means that any user, even without a subscription, can freely access and query the corpus. In this paper, the EEC is introduced by describing how it was built and compiled and how it can be queried and exploited, based both on the functionalities provided by Sketch Engine and on the parameters in which the texts in the EEC are classified.
