Hindi word frequency database
We are providers of high-quality frequency word lists in Hindi (and many other languages). The lists (sometimes called lexicons or dictionaries) are generated from an enormous authentic database of text (text corpora) produced by real users of Hindi. Our largest Hindi corpus contains texts with a total length of 1,300,000,000 words.
A relatively small corpus is sufficient to generate a list of the 2,000 most frequent Hindi words, or the list of 3,000 words or 5,000 words because such words appear frequently enough in any text.
However, an enormous text database (corpus) is required to ensure reliable word frequency information even for rare and infrequently used words. The only viable option of building corpora of billions of words is an automatic procedure of downloading content from the web. Lexical Computing developed a sophisticated procedure for collecting only linguistically valuable content from the web. A series of tools is used to focus on the right content and to perform deduplication and cleaning. This ensures that the statistics are reliable. This blog post gives more details.
We are able to generate frequency lexicons of millions of unique words in Hindi. The size that can be dlivered is affected by the customer’s requirements. By default, we will not include any word which appears fewer than 5 times in the corpus. Such words are typically noise without any linguistic value. The client can specify any filtering options.
Enriched frequency wordlists
We are also able to provide additional information such as POS tags, probabilities of the next word, or any other statistics or morphological information.
The easiest is to register a free trial account in Sketch Engine and use the wordlist tool to generate a wordlist. The advanced tab of the wordlist tool allows for detailed specifications to be used.
We will provide a quotation based on the exact specifications and the intended use of the lexicon.
The database will be made for download to you on a dedicated link within the agreed period of time. It normally takes a week or two to generate the data. Wordlist with complex specifications can take longer to produce.
