Hi everyone,

a team of English language researchers is in need of 2,000 words extracts from Singaporean weblogs. The data will be used to set up a corpus1 that will be available free of charge to bona fide academic researchers.

You are a native Singaporean and want to give us permission to collect samples from your online journal? You have further questions? Then please comment or contact hack2301 @ uni-trier . de (RE: SG Weblog). We most urgently need people aged 36+ to achieve a balanced age ratio of the data but all help is appreciated, no matter how old you are. We still need 7 more people to get to our goal of 50 blogs.

We would also be grateful if you could point out other communities, bulletin boards, etc. where we could post this request.

Thanking you,

1) examples of corpora would be the British National Corpus and the International Corpus of English.
