Automatic Linguistic Analysis.
Coker, Pamela L.; Underwood, Mark A.
Computer programs for linguistic analysis of language samples from bilingual children were surveyed in order to evaluate their usefulness. Eight programs which could be implemented on the UCLA IBM 370/3033 computer were considered. It was determined that the Computer Assisted Language Analysis System was the most promising in terms of capabilities and costs. In addition, a series of programs which could be implemented immediately were found on site. However, these programs were limited to word frequency counts and concordance programs based on terminal strings. Abstracts of computer analyses of language are appended. (Author/RW)
