Thanks for the URL, Detmar. In a similar vein, does anybody know if the (written) corpora for the American Heritage Dictionary (dating from 1969-5 million words) and/or the Thorndike-Lorge corpus from the 30s-40s (18 M words) are at all available? (Having worked decades ago at the Library of Congress on the T-L frequency dictionary and related books (eg, the Lorge ms leading to West?'s book, I doubt if that one exists, though I didn't search for it then. I also have my doubts about the AHD corpus (I am currently working on the AHD frequency dictionary), but good luck to me!
