This corpus contains the Persian (Farsi) translation of a part of the novel “1984” (G. Orwell) annotated in the Multext-East framework (Multilingual Text Tools and Corpora for Eastern and Central European Languages). The aim of the Multext-East project was to develop standardized language resources.

The package comprises:
(i) the specifications for morphosyntactic encoding of Persian Language, based on the EAGLES/MULTEXT model and specific resources of MULTEXT-East,
(ii) the annotated Persian version of Orwell’s 1984 corpus.

The corpus contains extensive headers and markup for document structure, sentences, and various sub-sentence annotations in the XML-format following the TEI guidelines. Annotation includes POS (part-of-speech) and lemmas. The corpus contains approximately 100,000 words (6,604 sentences, 13,247 lemmas) and can easily be aligned with other corpora in the MULTEXT-East framework.
