The Swiss SMS corpus is online

Good news for linguists: the Swiss SMS corpus is now freely available on the ZuKL server. Interested researchers or teachers can register for non-commercial uses. 

More than 25'000 SMS have been collected by calling "Donate your SMS for science". Within the SNSF project SMS communication in Switzerland ZuKL member Elisabeth Stark (UZH, Institute of Romance Studies) and her team worked on the normalization and the part-of-speech tagging of the multilingual corpus. Now, they are happy to share the evidence of their success with all researchers.
