    The quality of a measurement can be described by a specification of the process creating the result and by inspection of the result. In the case of inspection, an exact measurement of previously specified parameters ensures compatibility of different measurements performed by different researchers on similar objects. The compa-rison of different measured values requires an exact description of the measuring process.

    Today, even simple measurements like the size of a corpus measured by the number of tokens or the average sentence length measured in words are not comparable. Therefore a more standardized way of corpus measurement is strongly needed.
