We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

A PhD student of mine, working on syntactic & semantic connections between TOUGH-constructions and middle constructions (This shirt washes easily / this shirt is easy to wash) is desperately seeking a substantial corpus for middles, not necessarily tagged, but preferably including some right and left context. Could anyone help?
Thanks in advance, and merry Xmas to all of you!
