Dear Juergen,

I believe our Skolt Saami Documentation Corpus might satisfy your criteria. It is available via the Language Bank of Finland, see https://www.kielipankki.fi/language-bank/ (or direct link to the corpus: http://urn.fi/urn:nbn:fi:lb-2014073037).

Best wishes,
Matti

> Dear colleagues — An advisee of mine is looking for glossed texts to investigate the use of strategies alternative to grammaticalized definiteness marking. Basically, she’s trying to identify about half a dozen genealogically and areally unrelated languages each of which meets all of the following criteria:
> 
> 1. The language lacks grammaticalized definiteness marking. 
> 
> 2. A text or corpus of texts is available for the language that has Leipzig-standard interlinear glosses and translations in English or Spanish.
> 
> 3. The text (corpus) comprises at least about 1000 clauses, but ideally twice that or more.
> 
> 4. The individual texts should be long-ish and their referring expressions shouldn’t be predominately proper names. 
> 
> If you’re aware of a language so resourced, please let me know!
> 
> Many thanks! — Juergen
