    Dear Charo de Felipe

    As far as I know, one of the earliest (perhaps *the* earliest)
    publication of linguistic research using an electronic corpus

    J. McH. Sinclair, S. Jones, and R. Daley
    English Lexical Studies:
    Report to OSTI on Project C/LP/08
    Department of English
    University of Birmingham
    January 1970

    Unfortunately, very few copies of this seminal work
    were made publicly available, so it may also be of
    interest that it is currently being prepared for
    re-publication by Birmingham University, and will
    probably appear later this year.

    Best wishes
