(last updated september 2007)

The CORPORA list is open for information and questions about text corpora such as availability, aspects of compiling and using corpora, software, tagging, parsing, bibliography, conferences etc. The list is also open for all types of discussion with a bearing on corpora.

I hope that you will be able to share information, questions, answers, programs etc. with the other members on the list.

You may send conference and book announcements RELEVANT TO CORPORA, but please keep them SHORT and TEXT ONLY and give reference to a URL giving the full announcement. If you don't have access to a web-server, you may place documents on the Corpora site by contacting

Only messages from members will automatic be sent to the list members. Messages from others (and this includes members who have changed their address since subscription) will be held in queue for approval by the list owner. Don't resend the message.

When you get a new e-mail address, please inform the list owner about this (giving also your old address).
