Abstract

Amharic is one of under-resourced languages. The paper presents two text corpora. The first one is a substantially cleaned version of existing morphologically annotated WIC Corpus (210,000 words). The second one is the largest Amharic text corpus (17 million words). It was created from Web pages automatically crawled in 2013, 2015 and 2016. It is part-of-speech annotated by a tagger trained and evaluated on the WIC Corpus.
