Two significant language corpora, the Michigan Corpus of Spoken Academic English (MICASE), and the Michigan Corpus of Upper-Level Student Papers (MICUSP) were developed at the English Language Institute. Teachers and researchers across the world use these historically important collections of language for linguistic analysis, classroom activities, and materials development.
Below are links to ELI corpus materials, which are all freely available for study, research and teaching. For inquiries about possible commercial uses of these materials, please see the MICASE and MICUSP fair use statements.
