Dear Knut

I can only echo these words of sincere thanks - and add heartfelt congratulations for having created it too.

Best regards

>> The IT department at the University of Bergen has now decided to stop supporting Unix mail and have moved to Microsoft Exchange. The Mailman software used for running the Corpora list will therefore no longer be available. The archive files will not be available anymore. I know that some sites have been archiving the list. The Linguist List has an archive from March 1999 to February 2017.

>> If anybody would like to continue the list in any form either at their own site or using Mailman hosting or other software, I can provide the member list and a dump of the archive.
