Information: This dataset contains highly sensitive material or data that come from a third party and have heavy constraints on access and use. This dataset is therefore stored not on the FoLD web server but on an air-gapped, offline computer in our secure data lab at the Aston Institute for Forensic Linguistics. Users who wish to access this dataset must make a detailed application to FoLD and the researcher, as well as potentially gain additional agreement from an external organisation before they can be approved for access.
