Sparv is Språkbanken’s text analysis tool and consists of a corpus annotation pipeline, a web API and a web interface.

Sparv’s web interface offers an easy way to annotate shorter texts using the same tools as are applied in the annotation of the corpora in Korp. Please note that the web interface uses an older version of the Sparv pipeline (version 2).

If you would like to learn more about how to use Sparv’s web interface you can find the Sparv user manual here and some exercises in Swedish here.

Please contact if you have any questions, problems or suggestions.
