ParCzech PS7 2.0 is a corpus (collection) of stenographic protocols that record the Chamber of Deputies' (PS) meetings held in the 7th term between 2013-2017. The audio recordings are available as well. The corpus is automatically enriched with the morphological and named-entity annotations using the procedures UDPipe 2 and NameTag 2, resp.

To make the corpus accessible in a more user friendly way than the Parliament publishes the protocols, we use the web-based platform TEITOK that enables to (1) browse the corpus (see Browse in the menu on the left) and (2) search it using the CQL and KonText tools (see CQL Search and Search in KonText, resp.). The corpus is downloadable from LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ, see Download.

The menu border is blue that visualizes the latest version of the corpus while gray visualizes the previous versions, see ParCzech PS7 1.0. In the future, we will use one more color, namely the red one, to distinguish live corpora from stable corpora.

Difference from the previous version


The following terms in the parliamentary procedures are relevant for browsing: during a term (volební období), there are meetings (schůze) which are a group of sittings (projednávání) and which typically take place in more than one day. Each meeting has its own agenda and an agenda item (bod schůze) is discussed in speeches (promluvy) that can be made at more than one sitting.

The documents (= protocols) are labeled in a way that describes the hierarchy of terms, meetings, sittings, agenda item ids in a given sitting and agenda items. All meetings are numbered from 001 onwards for each term, sittings from 01 onwards for each meeting, agenda item ids from 001 onwards for each sitting and agenda items from 001 onwards for each meeting. For illustration, eight different agenda items were discussed at the sitting on the 24th of October 2014 in order 000, 060, 019 etc.
