I realise this is a little specialised - following the responses to Susana
- but does anyone know of a corpus of Architecture texts, complete with
drawings or even spoken commentary.
We have an ESL-medium Architecture programme here at HKU and are looking
for material for a searchable corpus.
We actually have ESL-medium university programmes across the spectrum, and
are looking for corpora across that spectrum, but so far have only really
found - and developed - highly suitable corpora for our Law students.
Any ideas welcome.
