Abstract

It may seem that all corpora creators aim at establishing representative and balanced corpora. But some think that those two concepts are not precise. The author analyses whether those two concepts are important for corpora creators and whether there is any alternative. One alternative is the creation of a corpus which would represent only itself – texts would be selectednot on the basis of their 'representative character‘ but their 'aim‘. In order to determine the aim of the text, it is necessary to investigate the needs of text users. It should be also born in mind thatcorpora users are usually not computer scientists and therefore they need a user friendly interface. The installation mode of Windows may be a good example here. The installing software usually offers two installation modes: (i) a standard one for users who are not aware of their needs and (ii) an advanced one for users who know exactly what they need.
