You could try the OMIM database, which is currently 100M
It contains both journal references and large sections of
'plain' text. It also contains a large amount of technical
terms which will really test any kind of soundex matching
if you are using that.


Unfortunately it only comes as a flat text file, but is
very easy to parse.

And if you start reading it, you'll probably learn quite
a lot of things you really didn't want to know!! :-D
