Subject: Sum: spoken language corpora

Hi, everyone, 

Days ago I posted a query seeking information concerning the
availability of spoken language corpora, as a result of which I've
received an impressive number of responses, all being very helpful. My
heartfelt thanks to all who've responded, as are listed below (in no
particular order; and in case someone who has responded to my query
but whose name was left out here, do please kindly re-send your email
-- there's been some problem with my email for a few days and I've
been away for about two weeks. My aplogies for that):

Hilde Hasselgard <hilde.hasselgardiba.uio.no>suggests the following
websites from which the corpora can be ordered. There is also a Tact
version of the Colt corpus (London teenage speech) available on the
internet; you'll find it by searching for "Colt corpus".

Both the London-Lund and Lancaster Spoken English Corpus are available
through ICAME (International Computer ARchive of Modern English).
They have information files on it and the other English corpora in
their holdings available via anonymous ftp to: nora.hd.uib.no ICAME
also has Bengt Altenberg's extremely useful bibliographies of
published works based on or related to computerized English text
corpora (in directory pub/icame). ICAME's website is

For surveys of corpora, there are two on ICAME:
the Lancaster survey and my own survey of corpora. These are
available via anonymous ftp to nora.hd.uib.no in directory

bibliographies of published works based on or related to computerized
English text corpora (in directory pub/icame). ICAME's website is
