I'm trying to find a corpus (even purchase it) of French language that has these characteristics:

  • It should has a frequency list
  • List of words (not just lemmas) which are POS tagged
  • Preferably taken from diverse fields

Very similar to COCA in English.

Of course searching through Google can give many links. But none has them all. And besides, my French is not that good to understand website contents. I truly appreciate any help.

This is a high Google result that I’ve come across before, though I have not used it myself. It seems to satisfy your requirements: Lexique, based on FRANTEXT.


Entering the query string french corpus pos into the Virtual Language Observatory (VLO) gives you some choices, including PAROLE and Corpus arborée du français.
