Subject: Genre-Specific Corpora
E-mail this message to a friend
I am doing some research in concept extraction from different types of
texts or genres.
I am looking for free research corpora (in English and in any other
language) belonging to the following genres:
1) FAQs (I have already downloaded some small collections, but I
would like to have a more comprehensive range of topics).
2) Chat logs transcripts (I have already downloaded the NPS
Collection, 3 Codiac datasets and several smallish Many Eyes
3) Telephone conversation transcripts (missing)
4) Emails (I have already downloaded the Enron dataset and a couple
of junk mail collections)
5) Twitter posts corpora (missing, apparently the Edinburgh's Twitter
corpus is not available any more)
6) Corporate weblog corpora (missing)
I will be glad to share all the links and related documentation, once I got
all the genres in the list.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
