Dear General Manager of DIT

Request for permission to use texts for linguistic research


Creation of Arabic Corpus


I am working on a research project at the University of Leeds that involves collecting Arabic texts in electronic form and storing them on a computer to create a corpus that may be freely available to all. My present intention is that the corpus would be accessible via the Web.

I believe that you are the owner of the text(s) on the website(s):
http://www.pcmag-arabic.com

I would like to use the text(s) to be part of the corpus. People would be able to access your text(s) and the text(s) of others for further research and teaching. We may also want to use the text(s) for developing electronic products such as translators and dictionaries.

I would be very grateful if you would grant to myself and the University of Leeds a free and perpetual non-exclusive licence for the above purposes only.

In consideration for your consent mentioned above, I will gladly acknowledge your contribution in any relevant material.

If you agree to above and can confirm that there are no other third parties that have any further rights in the text(s) that I need to contact, please acknowledge your acceptance to this by returning signed and dated the enclosed copy of this letter using the envelope provided.

Yours faithfully


Dr Latifa Al-Sulaiti
