Corpus of Contemporary American EnglishThe corpus contains more than 385 million words of text, including 20 million words each year from 1990-2008, and it is equally divided among spoken, fiction, popular magazines, newspapers, and academic texts. (The most recent texts are from late 2008). The corpus will also be updated every six to nine months from this point on, and will therefore serve as a unique record of linguistic changes in American English.

The ICLE project was launched in 1990 by Sylviane Granger, University of Louvain-la Neuve, Belgium, and in 2002 the corpus was released in CD-ROM format, accompanied by a handbook which describes its structure and the status of English in the countries of origin of the learners. The corpus is made up of a number of subcorpora representing the following language backgrounds: Bulgarian, Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish. There is also a smaller comparable corpus of British and American undergraduate essays. The length of the essays varies between 500 and 1000 words. (as described by Ã…bo Akademi - Finland)
