Summary:   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):

cball@guvax.acc.georgetown.edu (Catherine N. Ball)
Hilde Hasselgard <hilde.hasselgard@iba.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".
