The Oxford English Corpus is a list of two billion words taken from written examples of English from around the world.[1] It is used in some Oxford University Press publications.

The corpus is based mainly on material collected from pages on the World Wide Web, and some other online sources, as well as from printed texts, such as academic journals, literary novels, everyday newspapers, magazines and from Hansard to the language of chatrooms, emails, and weblogs.[2]
