Frantext is one of the best French textual databases on the Internet. It is a collection of about 3,000 digitized French texts from the 16th to the 20th centuries, with a search facility (Stella) for literary, linguistic, lexicographical, and stylistic research.

A second version is an experimental section of 400 grammaticaly-encoded novels of 19th and 20th centuries.
