In June 2011, the Research Centre on Multilingualism (SFB 538) has
ended after twelve years of work. The Hamburg Centre for Language
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
about their content, size and conditions for access at the following
