Corpora (HZSK, http://www.corpora.uni-hamburg.de) has now made a
number of corpora available which were created at the SFB. The
majoritiy of these corpora are spoken language corpora in
EXMARaLDA format (and a number of export formats like ELAN etc).
You can find a full list of the corpora as well as detailed information
