Welcome to the release of a new digital research infrastructure for Swedish as a second language. Researchers and system developers from the University of Gothenburg and Språkbanken Text, among others, have made available around 1,000 student essays written by people with Swedish as a second language. The database will make it possible to study second language development in new and simpler ways.

The event is supported by the Nationella Språkbanken, Swe-Clarin and Learner Corpus Association. The major project funding came from Riksbanken Jubileumsfond. Additional financial support came from Språkbanken Text (VR) and Stockholm University.

The SweLL corpus is a newly compiled and manually annotated corpus of essays written by adult learners of Swedish as a second language. Essays have been manually pseudonymized,  normalized, and correction annotated. Various tools have been developed to support the process of annotation, annotation management and search.

Welcome to the release of both the corpus and the tools that will be presented by the SweLL project team!
