Anglo-Norman Correspondence Corpus

Grammatical analysis codes for the ANCC

The ANCC has been initially coded (as of April 2008) for certain grammatical features which are intended to permit comparisons of insular and continental texts. They concern aspects of morphology which have been claimed to characterise Anglo-Norman rather than mainland French, focusing on pronouns, infinitives, noun modifier inflections, and contraction of preposition and article. Below you will find the coding categories used for this purpose.
