This should be a simple question to many in the area, but for the life of me I can't find a solution by myself.
I need a corpus of medical text for the purposes of training a spell checker which will be used on... medical text. For this I need a large amount of text that has few (or ideally no) errors in it. The abstracts from Medline articles would be a good bet.
However, while I can many solutions that are grossly more complicated than I require (such as treebank) designed for tree-building or POS tasks, and would require significant work to remove annotation and compile into a single .txt, surely such a resource already exists?
Alternatively I could just visit a hundred or so Medline articles and start copy-pasting their abstract details I suppose...
