Qs: Seeking Middle Construction Corpora

Editor for this issue: Elyssa Winzeler <elyssalinguistlist.org>

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.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Dear all,

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!
