Hi Darwin,

one data set may be the Europarl corpus, i.e., a linguistically
annotated version of the EU documents, distributed under an open
license, with word- and sentence-level alignment and 1 mio tokens for
most EU languages (original corpous: http://www.statmt.org/europarl/,
annotated version: http://opus.lingfil.uu.se/).

The difference to ParlTrac data are the linguistic annotations (so,
it's really a huge chunk of structured data, not just plain text plus
meta data), that the Europarl data sets are heavily used in
linguistics and NLP, e.g., in machine translation, and that they
actually represent a "classical" resource in a number of ways. Having
these as Linked Data would promote Linked Data in linguistics and NLP
substantially. I have already worked out most aspects of converting
the English-French language pair plus its annotations to RDF, if
you're interested in cooperating on these efforts, applying them to
other languages, and hosting the data afterwards, please let me know.
