Twitter Corpus of Philippine Englishes (TCOPE)

A 135-million-word corpus created from roughly 27 million tweets sampled from 29 major cities in the Philippines. It is large and has a wide sampling distribution. TCOPE is also available in different formats, as such, it can be used to investigate ‘general’ contemporary PhilE as well as different types of variation within this PhilE. It can broaden horizons in the diachronic and sociolinguistic study of Philippine English(es). Please cite the overview paper when you use the corpus.
