Helsinki Corpus of Older Scots

Oppdatert: 2016-05-22

The Helsinki Corpus of Older Scots was compiled as a supplement to the diachronic part of the Helsinki Corpus of English Texts. The Scottish texts were selected according to the same principles of sociohistorical variation analysis as the main corpus, and the computer format, parameter coding and editorial and typographical conventions are also the same.

The corpus provides material for studying the last stages of the differentiation of the northern English dialect, the rise of a distinctive Scottish variety of English and the anglicization process of Scots.
