The rest of the paper is structured as follows: Section 2 presents the corpus construction pipeline, Section 3 introduces the linguistic annotation of the corpus, its format and its availability for on-line concordancing, Section 4 investigates the content of the corpus, by comparing it to [slWaC.sub.1], to the balanced corpus of Slovene KRES, and the reference corpus of Slovene Gigafida, while Section 5 gives some conclusions and directions for future work.
This section investigates how different the [slWaC.sub.2] corpus is from its predecessor, [slWaC.sub.1] and from two other corpora of Slovene [13]: the balanced reference corpus KRES, which contains 100 million words, and the reference corpus Gigafida, which contains 1.2 billion words, mostly (77%) from printed periodicals created between 1990 and 2011.
Namely, as a previous frequency profiling of Gigafida and KRES shows [2] lemmas like "odstotek" (percent); "milijon" (milion), "evro" (euro), "dolar" (dollar), "tolar" (former Slovene currency)-, "predsednik" (president), "premier" (prime minister), "drzava" (state), "minister" (minster); "ameriski" (American), "britanski" (British), "hrvaski" (Croatian), "nekdanji" (former), "leto" (year), "lani" (last year), and "zdaj" (now) all typically appear in daily newspapers (or, in our case, on news portals) reporting on interior and international affairs--and, as mentioned, we found all of them at the bottom of the LL list, indicating less news in [slWaC.sub.2] than in [slWaC.sub.1] and also the shifting of major news topics (for instance from Kosovo and Iraq).
We made a comparison between [slWaC.sub.2] and KRES [13], the balanced reference corpus of Slovene with 100 million words.
