This paper reports on an ESRC-funded research demonstrator project that looks at the planning and development of the third generation of corpus tools: the multi-modal, multi-media corpus. It firstly explores the context for the research, explaining the limitations that current corpora exhibit in the exploration of conversation, beyond the mere spoken word. It continues with a brief exploration of the main phases in the planning, development and analysis of corpora for the future, highlighting requirements and problems encountered at each stage.
