A parallel electronic corpus of state treaties
This chapter introduces the Parallel Electronic corpus of State Treaties (PEST). The current plan is to compile a parallel corpus, which will include treaties concluded between Russia and Finland, Finland and Sweden, and Sweden and Russia. In addition, there will be a subcorpus of international conventions in all three languages plus English, to be used as reference data. The chapter describes the structure of the subcorpora (number of documents, their chronological distribution and topics featured), and it also addresses the challenges of balancing such a corpus. In the future, this material can be used for studies ranging from lexicon and semantics to grammar, style, discourse, translation studies, and language for special purposes.
