This is work in progress.

The main genres are:

  • nar: Narratives (sagas, fiction)
  • rel: Religious texts (bible, sermons)
  • sci: Science (linguistics, natural sciences, history)
  • for: Formal texts (law, formal letters)
  • bio: Biographical material (biographies, travelogues)

Further subclassification is reflected in the extended genre label. For example nar-sag means narrative-saga and rel-bib means religious text-bible. The sub-classification resembles the Helsinki Corpus genres to some extent.
