[Corpora-List] corpora of grammatical errors

Hi Anabela

#1 Do ALL the currently available public corpora not 'contain sentences with grammatical errors'? Very few (if any) texts will be 100% grammatically 'correct' (whichever model of grammar you use)? So BNC, COCA, etc should be OK for you? But the specific 'errors' your system identifies will of course depend on your choice of model.

#2 If you want a corpus with a high proportion of 'errors', would any available LANGUAGE LEARNER, NON-NATIVE-SPEAKER, NON-STANDARD, or VARIETAL corpus be sufficient for your purposes? These corpora should be easy to find via Google, by specifying one of those attributes?

Hope this helps Ramesh

Dear Corpora List Members,

I am looking for public corpora containing sentences with grammatical errors.

I plan to use the corpora as input to grammar checking and correction routines.

The corpora can be in English or romance languages. I appreciate any indication of where I can find those corpora. Thank you!
