Qs: Developing Corpora with Semantic Purposes

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

I'm a M.A student of general linguistics and I'm trying to build up a
linguistic corpus which can be used for semantic analysis for the
Persian language. I have not yet found any books or other materials
which can guide me through developing one.

I have chosen this subject for my M.A thesis, but I want it to be
expandable. I have planned to include written and spoken data in this
corpus, and it's not going to be limited to a special kind of text.
However I want this data to be tagged properly so that different
analyses would be possible for others beyond what I will develop for my

I was wandering if you could tell me what to read and/or who I can
contact with on this subject?

Thanks in advance,
Shaya Shahabi
