American National Corpus: Adjustment to Licensing Fee

The Linguistic Data Consortium is pleased to announce an adjustment to
the licensing fee for the American National Corpus. The original fee
was intended to recover part of the funds the LDC and the ANC
Consortium invested and will invest in corpus creation, CD mastering
and replication, the creation and administration of the ANC agreements,
and the documentation and maintenance of the corpus. Given the
enormous interest we have seen in the ANC in the first few days since
its announcement, it seems clear that we can distribute many more
copies at a much lower cost than originally predicted. Thus the
licensing fee for the American National Corpus will be $75. Please
also note that ANC data may be shared within the licensing
organization, for example, across departments within the same
University. This adjustment is effective from October 21, the date
"ANC First Release" was announced.

Message 2: French Learner Language Oral Corpora

French Learner Language Oral Corpora (FLLOC)

As part of a research project at the University of Southampton in the UK, we
have created a database of French Learner Language Oral Corpora:
www.flloc.soton.ac.uk. This database includes a number of corpora which have
been formatted according to CHILDES conventions and can be analysed using
CLAN software.

As an additional information service to the international SLA research
community, we wish to add an extra feature to our website, i.e. a more
comprehensive inventory of as many as possible of the French L2 corpora
available internationally. We would like information about both oral and
written L2 French corpora, plus details of the formats in which they are
held.

We are also considering expansion of the FLLOC collection itself, in order
to add a limited number of further French L2 oral corpora to the searchable
CHILDES-formatted database.

If you have a French L2 corpus, oral and/or written, and would like it to be
included in our inventory and/or in our FLLOC database, please fill in the
details below, and return to F.J.Mylessoton.ac.uk.
