Subject: YU-CORPUS

Dear colleagues, Aarhus, Denmark, June 1992

This message is to announce the first part of my YU-CORPUS (Yugoslav text
corpus) consisting of (mainly) contemporary fiction (prose) in Serbo-Croatian
with the main areas represented: Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, and Bosnia-
The corpus consists of 15 files containing together approximately 700 000
These files are available by

ftp at aau.dk ( in the directory /home/ftp/pub/slav

First get the text files yu-corp.txt, which among other things tells
about the chosen ASCII standard, and yu-index.txt, which identifies the
available texts by author(s) and size.
The corpus files are zipped and must thus be transferred in binary mode.

All comments are welcome
