Tagalog Text Corpus

About the SEAlang Library Tagalog Text Corpus 
This corpus contains more than two million words taken from:
 - examples extracted from the Ramos Tagalog-English Dictionary,
 - texts from the Tagalog Literary Text collection, prepared by the Philippine Languages Online Corpora project (discussed in dita_roxas2011philippine.pdf), and accessible via Palito. It includes some 200,000 words.
 - various Internet sources, including material located by Kevin Scannell as part of his work on corpus building for minority langauges, An Crúbadán.
Usage
Try searching for bata.
 - context searches show how the search target appears in context, taking both leading and trailing collocates (or neighboring words) into account. This search returns a merged list of leading and trailing collocates.
 - collocate searches are better for focusing on the search target's immediate neighbor. This search returns separate lists of leading and trailing collocates.
 - merged view allows for fast switching between collocate and context views.  Try brief first - downloaded pages may be very large, and a slow browser may fall behind in displaying the detailed view. The Go! button invokes the brief view.
 - raw contexts show the search word in context without any attempt at analysis or sanity-checking (local segmentation that helps ensure that a real word has been found).
 - restrict collocates requires (or forbids) all collocates to have at least one sense with a particular part of speech or usage.
Additional tips
Because the underlying text corpus may be quite large, results may be taken from a random sample of hits.  For common words, this means that sample contexts and exact collocate frequencies will vary from run to run.
   Clicking on a word/collocate with the mouse starts a new search: yellow searches for contexts, and black searches for collocates.
