The next five papers focus on the diversity of language in Australia, and the implications for the design of the AusNC. Another four papers discuss the range of material, other than traditional texts and transcripts, which should be collected and included in the AusNC. The collection is rounded off by a paper on the advances in annotation associated with the American National Corpus.
