    Dear list subscribers,

    I am looking for (preferably electronic) corpora, in English and in
    Japanese, which allow a search for a particular grammatical construction.
    Any information you could offer would be much appreciated.

    The construction in question is Object Topicalization. An example is below.
            These issues, I will discuss later.

    Is there any tagged English corpus which is ready for a search of this
    construction? If not, is there one which can be easily tagged for such a

    As for Japanese, I am not aware of any corpus on which a linguistic search
    could be run, but I would appreciate it if any of you could correct me and
    tell me of one.

    Thank you very much for your attention.
