Dear colleagues,

we are happy to announce the first public release of our corpus annotation tool CorA!


CorA is a web-based tool for token-level annotation of texts, intended particularly for historical and other non-standard language data. Some of its features include:

* Annotation of normalized wordforms, parts-of-speech, morphology, and


* Editing the source data (e.g., to correct mistakes in a

transcription, or to change token boundaries)

* Calling external tools for automatic (pre-)annotation directly from

the web interface

A comprehensive user documentation is available here:


Originally developed for the annotation of historical corpora of Early New High German[1][2], CorA has since been used in a variety of other projects, including the annotation of social media data.[3] Due to this widespread interest, we have decided to prepare this official release and make it available under the permissive MIT license.
