The National Edition of August Strindberg's Collected Works was published as 72 printed volumes 1981–2013, and contains Strindberg's complete works along with critical commentaries. SNEC includes a plain text version and a linguistically annotated CoNLL‑U version of the works, as well as a plain text version of the critical commentaries. The plain text versions include minimal formatting in which one blank line corresponds to a paragraph break or a chapter break. In the CoNNL-U version, a blank line corresponds to a sentence break and two blank lines correspond to a paragraph or chapter break.

The corpus was extracted from data kindly provided by Litteraturbanken. The linguistic annotation was produced by the efselab pipeline for Swedish, and consists of part-of-speech tags in the SUC and Universal part-of-speech tags (version 2) formats, and dependency annotation in the Universal Dependencies format (version 2).
