The corpus consists of texts from three Wiki-based lexica in German language: MiniKlexikon, Klexikon and Wikipedia. The articles in the Wikis are created by volunteers and can be written, discussed, and improved upon collaboratively. Klexikon is aimed specifically at children aged between 6 and 12 and MiniKlexikon is designed for children who are beginner readers, and is therefore an even simpler version of the Klexikon. We make the assumption that the three different sub-corpora represent three different levels of conceptual complexity due to the target groups they are written for: younger children, children and adults. As Wikipedia articles can be extremely long, in comparison to the other two lexica, only the introduction or abstract was taken for this corpus.
