ASK – Norsk andrespråkskorpus
Norsk andrespråkskorpus (ASK) is an electronic, searchable text corpus for Norwegian as second language where language data and personal data are linked. The datasets are taken from the archive of the Norwegian Language Test on immigrants who have passed the Norwegian language test for adult immigrants and the Higher level test.
The texts have mainly been chosen on the basis of the candidates’ mother tongues, where it was aimed for typological diversity.
