I am looking for a large corpus of text messages. By large, I am hoping to have at least 15,000 text messages in my sample. I am fine with combining several smaller corpora into a larger corpus as I will also be adding thousands of text messages relating to the patterns of interest in my research.
Clarification on Requirements:
- Text messages should predominantly be in English (US/American ideally), although a mixture of Spanish (Mexican Spanish) is also good.
- The corpus can be either free or available for a reasonable fee.
- They should be text messages, as I am specifically looking for euphemisms and slang used in text messaging as well as emoticons.
