I am looking for an English-language corpus with part of speech tags, and at
least 3 million words, which is freely available.
I want to test a word sense disambiguation method on the corpus, so if possible,
it should be a balanced sample of general language. (unlike the Wall Street Jour
nal, or scientific abastracts, for example.)

Any information will be of help.
Many thanks,
