The Stockholm-Umeå Corpus (SUC) is a collection of Swedish texts from the 1990's, consisting of one million words in total. The corpus is balanced, meaning that it contains various text types and stylistic levels. The texts are annotated with part-of-speech tags, morphological analysis and lemma (all that can be considered gold data), as well as some structural and functional information. All other annotation was created automatically by Sparv.
Version 1.0 was developed in co-operation between Gunnel Källgren at Stockholm University and Eva Ejerhed at Umeå University and was made available in 1997 by the department of linguistics at Stockholm University. Version 2.0 was made available in 2006 by Sofia Gustafson-Capková and Britt Hartmann at the department of linguistics at Stockholm University. It contains the same texts as SUC 1.0 but is extended with some annotation. Additionally, SUC 2.0 contains bonus materials. TigerSUC is SUC 2.0 converted to TIGER-XML by Martin Volk. StorSUC is additional SUC material of four million words. Version 3.0 is available since 2012. It contains improved annotations, and unannotated texts with seven million words. (For the TigerXML-version, Suc2c, Suc2d, and the DTDs we still refer to version 2.0.)
SUC is freely available for research, but requires that every user signs an individual license with the department of linguistics at Stockholm University. Since December 1st 2008 the SUC licensing is delegated to Språkbanken at the University of Gothenburg.
