We are pleased to announce that the DEMOCRAT corpus, a reference and coreference annotated corpus for French, is now available on-line with CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 license on the Ortolang platform (Open Resources and TOols for LANGuage): https://www.ortolang.fr/market/corpora/democrat

It is a corpus of written French (689,000 words) that includes about fifty excerpts from texts from various periods, half of them literary and half taken from non-narrative textual genres. All centuries from the 11th to the 21st are covered, which allows for diachronic analyses. The number of annotations (198,000 referring expressions, and 20,000 coreference chains grouping 2 or more expressions, including 9,000 reference chains grouping 3 or more expressions) was intended so as to allow for NLP exploitations of the corpus. All information, licenses and involved contributors are listed on the download web page.
