N-grams data

In addition to the COCA and COHA-based n-grams of English, we also have n-grams for Spanish, based on the 20 million words of texts from the 1900s in the 100 million word the Corpus del Espaņol. Although the Spanish n-grams are based on much smaller corpora than COCA and COHA, they are still the only n-grams that we are aware of that are based on large, genre-balanced corpora.

The following are small samples of the n-grams data, each of which include the 50,000 most frequent n-grams (along with part of speech):
2-grams 3-grams 4-grams 5-grams

The following are the approximate number of n-grams:

2-grams 3-grams 4-grams 5-grams
2,400,000 6,000,000 7,500,000 6,900,000

The n-grams data for Spanish is available in two different formats:

Format Explanation

All 2, 3, and 4-grams in the corpus, along with part of speech (as in the examples above).


2, 3, 4, 5-grams with words as unique integer values for each word form, as well as one "lexicon" file with information about each integer value -- word form (+/-  case sensitive, lemma, and part of speech). You then create SQL joins between the n-grams and lexicon, as with the English files. More complicated (need to know SQL), but able to create much more powerful queries.

Pricing for either format shown above is:

  • $95: academic

  • $195: commercial
