Manipuri (locally known as Meeteilon) is the Administrative Language of ManipurIt is the lingua franca amongst the various communities within and outside the state since it is mainly spoken in the northeast Indian states of Assam and Tripura, and also in other countries like Bangladesh and Burma (now Myanmar). The Linguistic Data Consortium for Indian Languages (LDC-IL) set up under the umbrella of Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL), Mysore whose main target is to work on Indian Languages Technology, has developed LDC-IL Manipuri Text Corpus gratifying various factors such as quality of the text, representativeness, retrievable format, size of corpus, authenticity etc. by adopting a standard category list of various domains and a prior set of criteria. The corpus of Manipuri text can be broadly classified as literary and non- literary texts. Huge amount of literary texts are available in Manipuri but scientific texts are less; however, LDC-IL attempts to develop balanced text corpora of Manipuri. Data has been collected from books, magazines and newspapers, verified as per the perspectives of ‘trust the text’ and then warehoused. 

A much more detailed explanation of the Manipuri Text Corpus will be available in the Manipuri Text Corpus Documentation.
