monitor corpus

Dynamic corpus without a fixed size , because new language data is regularly added as opposed to a sample corpus. In spite of increasing corpus size proportion of text types included in the corpus should remain constant ; typically a larger size than a sample corpus. Collected to illustrate language change in different time periods ( e.g. distribution of neologisms ) , similar to diachronic corpus , but covers normally a shorter span of time.
