The Rise of the To-Infinitive
Oxford University Press

This investigation made use of the following electronic corpora:

  1. 1. The Toronto Corpus (see Healey and Venezky 1985 [1980]).

  2. 2. The Helsinki Corpus of English texts, created under the direction of Professor Matti Rissanen at the University of Helsinki (see Kytö 1993).

  3. 3. The Brooklyn–Geneva–Amsterdam–Helsinki (BGAH) corpus. This is the OE part of the Helsinki Corpus that has been syntactically annotated and parsed as part of an ongoing joint project of Ans van Kemenade and Frank Beths (Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam), Willem Koopman (University of Amsterdam), Susan Pintzuk (University of York), and Eric Haeberli (University of Geneva). The annotation scheme includes verb complementation patterns.

  4. 4. The Penn–Helsinki Parsed Corpus of Middle English (PPCME), annotated under the direction of Professor Anthony Kroch (University of Pennsylvania) with the support of the National Science Foundation and with supplementary support from the University of Pennsylvania Research Foundation. The annotation scheme was designed by Anthony Kroch and Ann Taylor and implemented by Ann Taylor.

  5. 5. Various Middle English texts from the Oxford Text Archive, downloaded by anonymous FTP.

  6. 6. Various Middle English texts from the Middle English Compendium, University of Michigan.

  7. 7. The MicroConcord Corpus (OUP), a small corpus of PE texts, delivered as part of the MicroConcord package.

  8. 8. The Ernestus Corpus, a private research corpus of spoken Dutch, described in Ernestus (2000: 57–63).

The search software used was Wordcruncher, MicroConcord (OUP), and Wordsmith, with some additional GREP-routines in UNIX. (p.308)
