ARCHER: A Representative Corpus of Historical English Registers

ARCHER is a multi-genre corpus of British and American English covering the period 1600-1999, first constructed by Douglas Biber and Edward Finegan in the 1990s. It is managed as an ongoing project by a consortium of participants at fourteen universities in seven countries.

On receipt of a signed User Agreement, ARCHER will be made available both for in-house use at the consortium universities and for online internet searches.

The coordinators may be contacted via
