Hong Kong Corpus of Corporate Governance Reports
(Part of speech search)

Welcome to the HKCCGR developed by the Research Centre for Professional Communication in English of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The one-million word HKCCGR consists of the corporate governance reports of 217 companies listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. These companies were carefully chosen to reflect the weighting of the four main sectors listed on the exchange (i.e. finance, utilities, property, and commercial and industrial). The moves which comprise the corporate governance reports were identified and 25 sub-corpora were compiled based on each move.

There are currently 1,034,673 words in the HKCCGR.

2. Search string syntax word^pos. [e.g. book^nn, book^vb ^dt, ^vb ^dt ^nn, etc.]
  • The symbol ^tag indicates the tag to be searched for. The string in front of the caret symbol ^ is the query word.
  • A maximum of 5 units of 'word', 'word^pos' or '^pos' can be used for query.
  • A caret with a number (e.g. ^2) in the middle of the search string instructs the search engine to skip two words in between any two query parameters (e.g. book ^2 advance).
  • Head and/or tail partial search of the query word/phrase is possible by adding '  -  ' to the front or end of the query word/phrase (e.g. -ment, advan-, -fine-)
  • Tail partial search for the POS tag is possible by adding '-' at the end of the POS tag (e.g. ^NN- will return ^NN, ^NNS, ^NNP, ^NNPS)
