Hello,

I'm doing some preliminary research on truth-telling and deception in
medical practice. I'm planning to use discourse analysis as a
methodological tool. Does anyone know if a corpus of medical
discourse (ideally patient-doctor interactions) exists and, if so,
where one can access it?

Many thanks for your help.

Regards,

Daniel

Hi. We're looking for a lexicon in Prolog that contains a
considerable chunk of the common English vocabulary. It should have
verbs conjugated, etc, not just lemmas. They should be organized by
part of speech. We've been having trouble finding a suitable one and
wondering if anyone here has access to one or knows of a public-domain
one?

Yours,
- Asad.
