The project is set up in order to improve the infrastructure for text-based linguistic research and development by building a huge, automatically annotated German text corpus and the corresponding tools for corpus annotation and exploitation. DeReKo constitutes the largest linguistically motivated collection of contemporary German texts, contains fictional, scientific and newspaper texts, as well as several other text types, contains only licenced texts, is encoded with rich meta-textual information, is fully annotated morphosyntactically (three concurrent annotations), is continually expanded, with a focus on size and stratification of data, may be analyzed free of charge via the query system COSMAS II, serves as a 'primordial sample' from which users may draw specialized sub-samples (socalled 'virtual corpora') to represent the language domain they wish to investigate.
