The present corpus of Dolgan has been created as part of the long-term research project INEL (“Grammatical Descriptions, Corpora and Language Technology for Indigenous Northern Eurasian Languages”) in the context of the Academies’ Programme1, coordinated by the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities. Its primary goal is to create digital and machine-searchable corpora of several indigenous Northern Eurasian Languages. The INEL Dolgan corpus at hand fills a gap in the documentation of the indigenous languages of Northern Eurasia and makes possible further descriptions of the language. Dolgan is not completely unknown and undescribed, however, well-based grammatical descriptions are missing, whence the corpus can be a valuable tool for both language-specific and typologically oriented research.
