HOWDY Y'ALL,

A LONG WHILE BACK I ASKED FOR INFORMATION ON GERMAN AND ENGLISH CORPORA WHICH ARE TAGGED FOR GRAMMATICAL FUNCTIONS, AS WELL AS FOR ACCESSIBLE PARALLEL ENGLISH-GERMAN CORPORA. HERE IS A SUMMARY OF THE REPLIES I GOT.


ENGLISH GRAMMATICALLY TAGGED CORPORA

SOME PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN COLLECTIONS OF PARALLEL TEXTS, WHICH THEY MAY OR MAY NOT BE WILLING TO SHARE WITH OTHERS (THERE MAY BE COPYRIGHT ISSUES HERE).
THE TWO THAT AGREED TO BE MENTIONED HERE ARE
- RAPHAEL SALKIE (R.M.SALKIE@BTON.AC.UK), WHO HAS A COLLECTION OF PARALLEL TEXTS FROM WEBSITES, LITERATURE, MANUALS, EU- DOCUMENTS, POLITICAL WRITING AND SPEECHES COMING TO ABOUT 800.000 WORDS IN EACH LANGUAGE.
- ANATOL STEFANOWITSCH, WHO HAS A SMALL COLLECTION OF PARALLEL TEXTS FROM NEWS MAGAZINES (ABOUT 15,000 WORDS), AND WHO IS IN THE PROCESS OF ASSEMBLING A LARGER PARALLEL CORPUS OF NARRATIVE WRITING.
