The ARTFL Project

Description: 

The Project for American and French Research on the Treasury of the French Language, or the ARTFL Project, is a collaborative initiative between the University of Chicago and the French government. The ARTFL Project is a "consortium-based service that provides its members with access to North America's largest collection of digitized French resources". "The ARTFL project has focused on three objectives over its long history: to include a variety of texts so as to make the database as versatile as possible; to create a system that would be easily accessible to the research community; and to provide researchers with an easy-to-use but effective tool". The ARTFL Project corpus "consists of nearly 3,000 texts, ranging from classic works of French literature to various kinds of non-fiction prose and technical writing".
