The Knesset Corpus
(KC, Dattner 2015) is an approximately 1,760,000 words corpus of spoken Hebrew.
The corpus is a collection of transcriptions of 198 meetings of committees of the Knesset
, the Israeli parliament,
taking place between the years of 1996-2004.
The participants in these committees come from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from Knesset Members, to lawyers,
lobbyists, and professionals (e.g., police officers, or researchers), and to citizens with no academic training coming to voice their complaints. Thus, the corpus is composed of multiple registers of language, representing both formal and colloquial use of Hebrew.
