Dear CORPORA List members

We are planning to use a dialogue corpus for learning lexical entries as
well as resolution procedures for phenomena such as anaphora, ellipsis
and fragments. We were wondering if list members might be able to inform
us of any available dialogue corpora which are (any of the following):

1) semantically annoted, ie annotated for predicate-argument structure?
2) annotated for dialogue acts (eg answer, clarify, acknowledge,
continuation, etc)?
3) involve a variety of domains?

Since we are interested in the contributions of lexical as well as
propositional items, then the preference is for corpora that include
semantic structure below clause level.

Also, does anyone know of a list of the corpora available for specified
dialogue fragments/move types?

We would appreciate potential responders to this question to get back to
us before the end of March at the latest, as we are getting plans in
hand for a research submission within the next 6 weeks.
