Hi Juergen,

depending on exactly what you mean by "no grammaticalised definiteness
marking" your advisee might want to look at my Daakaka corpus. It contains
over 6400 annotation units (68k tokens) that are completely glossed, pos
tagged and translated into English. I currently have an easily accessible
version on the ANNIS platform and would be happy to share the login details
with your advisee if you put us in touch.

All the best,
Kilu
