This archive contains a collection of language corpora. These are text files that contain samples of text collected from English Wikipedia.



We have not collected the text ourselves, but rather downloaded an already available Wikipedia corpus collected for the Polyglot project. We partitioned this large corpus into smaller chunks so that we might be able to use them to explore the impact of various sizes of training corpora on word embedding performance. These smaller corpus chunks are what we're making available here, so they can be more easily related to our research. (2 kB)
