FRANTEXT is a French-language database which consists of about 4,250 French texts spanning from the medieval period to the present day. Launched in the 1970s, it has been available online since 1998. It is developed and maintained by the ATILF-CNRS (Analyse et Traitement Informatique de la Langue Française-Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique).
FRANTEXT provides access to a wide range of literary, philosophical. technical and scientific works. It has recently been enriched with a corpus of autobiographical texts which will interest historians and sociologists as well as literary researchers. Specific words, lists, regular expressions, etc. can be located in an individual work or corpus. The database is constantly updated.
