Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm at the moment on the lookout for an SMS corpus which contains all turns that make up one piece of an "SMS-communication". The aim of my project is to find out in what way deictics are being used in SMS language and whether this phenomenon, which is rather characteristic for spoken language/conceptually spoken and medially written language, enhances misunderstandings; or what kind of common ground is necessary to avoid misunderstandings in this respect The Corpus I am looking for is a corpus of English SMS and also provides me with as much data as possible about sex, age, ecucation and so forth of the sender and recipient of the SMS.

Many thanks for your help.

Sincerely yours,
