Query:   Hi,

I am doing some research in concept extraction from different types of
texts or genres.

I am looking for free research corpora (in English and in any other
language) belonging to the following genres:

1) FAQs (I have already downloaded some small collections, but I
would like to have a more comprehensive range of topics).
2) Chat logs transcripts (I have already downloaded the NPS
Collection, 3 Codiac datasets and several smallish Many Eyes
3) Telephone conversation transcripts (missing)
4) Emails (I have already downloaded the Enron dataset and a couple
of junk mail collections)
5) Twitter posts corpora (missing, apparently the Edinburgh's Twitter
corpus is not available any more)
6) Corporate weblog corpora (missing)

I will be glad to share all the links and related documentation, once I got
all the genres in the list.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Best Regards,

Marina Santini
