I seem to remember that Henry Sweet is suppoosed to have said somewhere that
if we accept Indo-European, we're forced to accept some sort of relationship
between Indo-European and Fnno-Ugric, based on regularly occurring
similarities. Would anoyne have an exatc quote?

Thanks in advance,

Message 2: public-domain video corpora?

Subject: public-domain video corpora?

Hello, does anyone know of the existence of a publically-available video corpus
which could be used for language training? (aside from the American National
Corpus, which is not public and not video...) A variety of discourse contexts
would be suitable with speakers of American English, although I would especially
like to find video clips of speakers in business situations.

Many thanks
