At the moment I am working with the wonderful London-Lund Corpus (LLC), a spoken language corpus of British English recorded in the 1960s-1970s. However, I am having problems finding corpora representative of British English as it is spoken now, i.e. after the turn of the century, or even after the 2010s. This would then allow me to study change over a longer period of time than corpora, such as BNC and ICE-GB, would allow me to do.
