In this format, words are not annotated for part of speech or lemma. In addition, contracted words like can't are separated into two parts (ca n't) and punctuation is separated from words (eye level . As her).

Note from Corpus del Español:

While the categorization by country is very good overall, there is one exception: the texts from the United States. The problem is that when Google didn't know what country a text (or domain) was from, they then categorized it as the United States (as kind of a "default"). So most of the texts (and domains) that are supposedly from the United States are probably from another country.
