    “APS” is the Augustan Prose Sample, a corpus of 52 selections of English prose published 1675–1725, available in machine-readable form, and compiled by the reviewer. See my forthcoming “What Is a Prose Corpus: The Augustan Prose Sample.” “BC” is the well-known Brown Corpus compiled by W. Nelson Francis and Henry Kučera.Google Scholar

    Dugast cites the very largeTrésor de la langue française, consisting (for the 19th Century) of 32.7 million words with aV of 47 628 and (for the 19 and 20th Centuries) of 70.3 million words with aV of 71 415. Although these figures are lower than might be expected from a comparison with BC (table 1), there is the factor of lemmatization in an inflected language to consider. In any case, it is doubtful that aV of 71 415 is near the limit.Google Scholar

    These are drawn from “Century of Prose Corpus,” 100 selections of 2000 words each, ten per decade in ten different genres, currently being compiled.Google Scholar
