The Standard Corpus of Present-Day Edited American English (the Brown Corpus)

The Brown Corpus was the first computer-readable general corpus of texts prepared for linguistic research on modern English. It was compiled by W. Nelson Francis and Henry Ku?era at Brown University in the 1960s and contains of over 1 million words (500 samples of 2000+ words each) of running text of edited English prose printed in the United States during the calendar year 1961. There are six versions of the corpus available: the original Form A, Form B from which punctuation codes have been omitted, the tagged Form C, Bergen Forms I & II and the Brown MARC Form.

The Brown Corpus has inspired a whole family of corpora, including the Lancaster-Oslo/Bergen Corpus (LOB), Brown's British English counterpart, as well as Frown and FLOB, the 1990s equivalents of Brown and LOB respectively.
