The Chambers-Rostand Corpus of Journalistic French
The texts have been checked for spelling and format errors, however only basic errors have been corrected such as missing letters, missing accents on 'e', accidental repetition of words (e.g. "repetition of of words"), missing space often due to uploading and dowloading hiccups. Potential/controversial "errors" concerning accents, hyphenation, capital letters, etc. were not corrected as they may be considered as part of the evolution of a language.
Tagging of the texts is done at paragraph level only.
