Do you know BootCat tools? They allow you to prepare special-language
corpora from web pages automatically. See
We are currently preparing a web-service version of the tool, so then you
can enter ‘seed’ terms and then produce a corpus in that area by clicking
the “go” button. Public version to follow before long. In the meantime, if
you give me half a dozen relevant architecture terms (single words or multi
words, and selected to avoid picking up non-architecture hits) I’ll make a
small sample corpus and point you to it,

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.

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.
