Addendum re Brown Corpus (to aid in further correspondence): The "untagged"
Brown Corpus (text only, essentially) is indeed available from the Norwegian
Centre for Humanistic Research, P.O. Box 53, Universitet Bergen, N-5027
 Bergen, Norway. It is available in various formats (including diskettes) but
 only to non-profit institutions, such as universities.
 However, the "tagged" version of the Brown Corpus (which includes a tag for
each of the one million+ words in terms of a set of 82-part-of-speech
designations) is NOT available from Bergen (because the tagged version provides
much more information and is protected by its own copyright). It is available
 on mag tape only, because of its size (1600 or 6250 bpi, ASCII or EBCDIC) from
 Text Research, 196 Bowen Street, Providence RI 02906. It can be purchased by
non-profit organization at relatively low cost (but higher than the text only)
and by commercial organizations under a license agreement. For further
information, contact Henry Kucera, e-mail HENRYBROWNVM.BITNET.
