Selected bibliography

Penn Parsed Corpora of Historical English

The Penn-Helsinki Parsed Corpora of Historical English are three corpora (two released and one under construction) of parsed prose text samples useful in historical syntax research. They were created with funding from the NSF and the NEH and are available on CD-ROM. See the corpus web site for details.

Papers available on line

This web site contains a number of papers written by Tony Kroch and some of his collaborators at Penn over the past several years. The papers are available as .ps files, which should be printable on any postscript printer, and/or as .pdf files documents, which are both printable on any printer and readable onscreen with Acrobat Reader, downloadable from Adobe Systems.

The papers have varying status. Some are finished products but others are drafts, which the authors are in the process of revising. If a paper is marked, "Do not cite," please respect the authors' request. You may distribute the papers you download to others, however, so long as you include any notice regarding citation that the paper may contain.
