Public Domain Generic Tools: An Overview.
This paper presents an introduction to language engineering software, especially for computerized language and text corpora. The focus of the paper is on small and relatively independent pieces of software designed for specific, often low-level language analysis tasks, and on tools in the public domain. Discussion begins with the application of standards to language corpora, and the role of information technology in promoting standardization. Current international standards and statistical tools are then examined briefly, and computational linguistic tools (morphological analyzers, implementation of formalisms, lexicon development environments) are noted. Problems in using public domain tools, and prospects for their resolution, are also discussed. A list of related World Wide Web resources is included. Contains 15 references. (MSE)
