Description:*Introduction* Chinese Gigaword Second Edition was produced by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) and contains a comprehensive archive of newswire text data in Chinese totalling approximately 1.3 billion words that has been acquired over several years by LDC. This edition includes all of the contents in the first release, Chinese Gigaword (LDC2003T09), as well as new data collected after the publication of the first edition, specifically Xinhua from October 2002 through December 2004 and CNA from January 2003 through December 2004. Also, a limited number of articles from a new newspaper source (Lianhe Zaobao) have been added in this edition. *Data* Here is a table of the three distinct international sources of Chinese newswire included in this edition along with a breakdown of how many documents and K-words (thousands of words) are included for each: Source Abbreviation Documents K-words Central News Agency, Taiwan (cna_cmn) 1,769,952 792,195 Xinhua News Agency (xin_cmn) 992,261 471,110 Zaobao Newspaper (zbn_cmn) 41,418 28,066 Totals 2,803,632 1,291,371 The seven-character abbreviations shown above represent both the source name and the language ID ("cmn" for Mandarin Chinese). The files are presented in zipped format containing SGML-formatted text files with multiple documents. Documents fall within three categories: * Story: a report composed of paragraphs and full sentences; most common * Multi: unrelated "blurbs" of several news items * Advis: advisories directed at news editors and not intended for publication/general audience * Other: intended for publication but not paragraphs or sentences; these are things like lists of sports scores, stock prices, temperatures around the world, etc. *Samples* For an example of the data in this corpus, please view this sample (SGML). *Updates* None at this time.
