As the title suggests, our paper deals with web discussion fora, whose content can be consid- ered to be a special type of comparable cor- pora. We discuss the potential of this vast amount of data available now on the World Wide Web nearly for every language, regard- ing both general and common topics as well as the most obscure and specific ones. To il- lustrate our ideas, we propose a case study of seven wedding discussion fora in five lan- guages.
