Research tools

Språkbanken is working actively to develop a language technology infrastructure. Currently, this mainly means harmonizing and standardizing as many free language resources as possible. In addition to resources, we also develop digital tools for exploring them and making them available to research and to the general public.

Språkbanken's document centred search tool. Strix offers advanced filters and a reading mode. Here you can choose any meta data attribute and the corresponding words will be highlighted in the text. This may help you to see a text from a different perspective.
