What exactly is the Lancaster-Bergen corpus?
I'd like to use this list of verbs in my class, so I'd like to know what it's origin is.

thanks
In linguistics, a corpus (plural corpora) or text corpus is a large and structured set of texts (now usually electronically stored and processed).

Cobuild dictionaries use corpus texts to show real examples of English used in context. The Lancaster/Oslo-Bergen Corpus (LOB): Approximately 1,000,000 words of British written English dating from 1960. The corpus is made up of 15 different genre categories.
