  <dc:description>This data collection contains the Swedish test data for SemEval 2020 Task 1: Unsupervised Lexical Semantic Change Detection:

- a Swedish text corpus pair (`corpus1/`, `corpus2/`)
- 31 lemmas which have been annotated for their lexical semantic change between the two corpora (`targets.txt`)
- the annotated binary change scores of the targets for subtask 1, and their annotated graded change scores for subtask 2 (`truth/`)

We sample from the KubHist2 corpus, digitized by the National Library of Sweden, and available through the Språkbanken corpus infrastructure Korp (Borin et al., 2012). The full corpus is available through a CC BY (attribution) license. Each word for which the lemmatizer in the Korp pipelien has found a lemma is replaced with the lemma. In cases where the lemmatizer cannot find a lemma, we leave the word as is (i.e., unlemmatized, no lower-casing). KubHist contains very frequent OCR errors, especially for the older data.More detail about the properties and quality of the Kubhist corpus can be found in (Adesam et al., 2019).

__Corpus 1__

- based on: Kubhist2
- language: Swedish
- time covered: 1790-1830
- size: ~71 million tokens
- format: lemmatized, sentence length &gt; 9 (before removal of punctuation), no punctuation, sentences randomly shuffled
- encoding: UTF-8
- note: contains frequent OCR errors

__Corpus 2__

- based on: Kubhist2
- language: Swedish
- time covered: 1895-1903
- size: ~111 million tokens
- format: lemmatized, sentence length &gt; 9 (before removal of punctuation), no punctuation, sentences randomly shuffled
- encoding: UTF-8
- note: contains OCR errors

Besides the official lemma version of the corpora for SemEval-2020 Task 1 we also provide the raw token version (`corpus1/token/`, `corpus2/token/`). It contains the raw sentences in the same order as in the lemma version. Find more information on the data and SemEval-2020 Task 1 in the paper referenced below.

  <dc:description>The creation of the data was supported by the project Towards Computational Lexical Semantic Change Detection funded  by a project grant from the Swedish Research Council  (2019–2022;   dnr  2018-01184). 
It has also been created as part of the effort to construct and develop a Swedish national research infrastructure in support of research based on language data. This infrastructure -- Nationella språkbanken (the Swedish National Language Bank) -- is jointly funded for the period 2018--2024 by the Swedish Research Council (grant number 2017-00626) and its 10 partner institutions.</dc:description>
