Corpus of Academic Slovene (PhD theses) KAS-dr 1.0


The KAS-dr corpus of Slovene PhD theses consists of almost 1,600 texts (266 thousand pages or 100 million tokens) written 2000 - 2018 and gathered from the digital libraries of Slovene higher education institutions via the Slovene Open Science portal (

The theses have associated with them significant metadata, while each thesis in the corpus contains its textual body, i.e. without their front and back matter. The body is divided into pages, these into paragraphs, and then into sentences. The sentence tokens are morphosyntactically annotated, words are lemmatised and English-Slovene pairs of term candidates are marked up and linked.

This repository entry contains the corpus of PhD theses only; separate entries are available that contain MSc/MA theses (KAS-mag:, BSc/BA theses (KAS-dipl: and the complete KAS corpus with all three (KAS:
