|The Dutch Language Corpus Initiative (D-Coi) was a project funded within the Dutch
-Flemish STEVIN programme. The D-Coi project was a preparatory project which aimed to produce a blueprint and the tools needed for the construction of a 500-million-word reference corpus of contemporary written Dutch. The project ran between June 2005 and December 2006 and was carried out by a joint Dutch-Flemish consortium of six academic institutions in collobaration with an industrial partner. Most partners had previously contributed to the successful compilation of the Spoken Dutch Corpus.
