ICAME is an international organization of linguists and information scientists working with English machine-readable texts. The aim of the organization is to collect and distribute information on English language material available for computer processing and on linguistic research completed or in progress on the material, to compile an archive of English text corpora in machine-readable form, and to make material available to research institutions.


This is a parsed subcorpus of the Lancaster-Oslo/Bergen (LOB) Corpus, compiled by Roger Garside, Geoffrey Leech and Tamas Varadi. It can now be obtained (under conditiond similar to those applying to other corpus holdings) through ICAME.


The Lancaster Parsed Corpus is a treebank consisting of sentences of the LOB Corpus, amounting altogether to over 133,000 words. Each sentence in the Parsed Corpus is annotated with a phrase-structure parse, represented in the form of labelled bracketing, marking the boundaries of sentence, clause, phrase, and coordinated word constiuents. The labels correspond to well-known `consensual` constituents such as noun phrases, relative clauses, infinitive clauses, etc. The annotations also include the word tags used for the Tagged LOB Corpus. See ICAME Journal 16, p. 124
