Not for me: a young girl who is studying at the University of Forlì to become translator and then interpreter must create a \"corpus\" of terminology containing terms in the lingerie and underwear industry.



She looked at the internet but was told by her professors she should NOT only base on the Internet findings, but also on printed leaflets, catalogues, magazines etc. in English.



The question is: does somebody of you know of existing English magazines specializing in lingerie and underwear or simply know other \"printed\" sources where she could find terms for this corpus?



She already created a corpus for the language pair FRIT and now she must do it

for ENIT.



All corpora made by the students are then published on the Internet by the University and can be searched by everybody.



Thank you all in advance for your help.

catalogues / magazines Feb 22, 2002

I did a Google search for \"lingerie catalogues\" and got 20,000 hits.



If your student needs to submit the actual printed catalogues with her job she can ask for them via the Internet. Most of these companies mail their catalogues if they\'re asked to.



She can also gather a lot of examples from women\'s magazines. Anyway, paper magazines are on the Internet too!
