The NOW Corpus (News on the Web) is composed of billion words of data, and it is growing by 120-130 million words per month, or about 1.5 billion words per year).

In order to create the corpus, scripts run every hour to get URLs for new magazine and newspaper articles from Google News, for about 9,000-10,000 new texts each day. We then download the texts, clean them up with JusText (to remove boilerplate material); tag and lemmatize them; and then integrate them into our existing relational database.
