Uppsala Persian Corpus (UPC) (Seraji, 2015, Chapter 3, pp. 68-81) is a large, freely available Persian corpus. The corpus is a modified version of the Bijankhan corpus (Bijankhan, 2004) with additional sentence segmentation and consistent tokenization containing 2,704,028 tokens and annotated with 31 part-of-speech tags.

The corpus is developed by Mojgan Seraji and licensed under GNU General Public License.

The corpus can be downloaded below: http://stp.lingfil.uu.se/~mojgan/UPC.html

The part-of-speech tags are listed with explanations in this table: http://stp.lingfil.uu.se/~mojgan/Table_tag.pdf

Our team at Google paid vendors to vocalize the UPC and contributed that back to the corpus.

Being a very valuable resource for persian, Uppsala  has a lot of mistakes which are easy [or sometimes hard] to catch and fix. I guess it is best to put it on a public repository (like github) and start proposing improvements over it. For example search for "دایرث" in the corpus. I assume it has been used instead of "دایره‌ی". I have found few similar mistakes in it and fixed them (to the best of my knowledge) however, I do not know where I can publish this so the rest of community can benefit from it.

If you maintain a change set/patch set you could keep that on GitHub? That is where I would first search, at least. What you probably want to avoid unless your interest is massive and lasting is to become a new publisher of the source. 

Sent from my phone. Please forgive misspellings and weird “corrections”
