I need a text corpus for my NLP project in Hindi, however all the corpora I found are not free for downloading. Is there any free annotated Hindi text corpus at all? If yes, where can I find it?

  • What is your project? Why not Wikipedia? – Adam Bittlingmayer Aug 19 '17 at 7:01
  • Wikipedia is not annotated... – Aryaman Apr 29 '18 at 20:02

The Wortschatz corpora at Leipzig University offer some Hindi corpora of different sizes and genres for download, go to this site


and click on "more" and than on "Hindi" (the page URL stays the same, but some javascript magic selects the Hindi language).

Technological Development for Indian Languages has a lot of resources for research in areas of NLP and Computational Linguistics on Indian Languages. It offers both annotated and unannotated corpora if you search by keywords in their Resources and Tools section.
