In 2014 there were two additions to the tools developed at the Slovak National Corpus Department: firstly KOLOKAT – a tool for visualization of the distance between components of a collocation (consisting of two or more words) based on the current version of monolingual corpus of written texts (prim-6.1) and secondly, the tool for automatic diacritics restoration named DIAKRITIK.
In 2014 the number of publications of the Slovak National Corpus increased to 11 due to publishing two books of proceedings: jubilee conference proceedings of the 10th anniversary of the Slovak National Corpus Jazykovedné štúdie XXXI. Rozvoj jazykových technológií a zdrojov na Slovensku a vo svete (10 rokov Slovenského národného korpusu) and secondly, terminology-oriented proceedings of the international conference entitled Aktuálne otázky terminológie marketingu.
Last year we enlisted cooperation with 95 new contributors. Among education institutions, a special mention can be given to Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Trnava, The Faculty of Theology of Trnava University; among publishers are Trio Publishing, Slovenský spisovateľ, Dobrá kniha, Hydra, Vydavateľstvo Spolku sv.
