DANTE – Database of Analysed Texts of English

DANTE stands for Database of Analysed Texts of English. “Its lexical entries
offer a thorough, systematic, and fine-grained description of the core vocabulary of English, derived entirely from corpus data.

 

DANTE is the product of a three-year lexicographic project, in which the core vocabulary of English was analysed from scratch, using a custom-built corpus of 1.7 billion words. It is a unique resource, providing a systematic description of the meanings, grammatical and collocational behaviour, and text-type characteristics of English words.”
