downloadable collection of machine-readable texts at:


The collection comprises 70 Atlas interviews conducted in Colorado,
Utah, and Wyoming from 1988 to 2004, with interviews covering
aspects of family and community history, local flora and fauna, ranching
and farming, household items, etc. Transcribed in standard
orthography, the entire collection comprises nearly 1.7 million words
that can be used to analyze middle Rocky Mountain English in terms of
its lexical, morphological, syntactic and discourse properties.
