COMPUTATIONAL TOOL FOR CONCORDANCE AND COLLOCATION EXTRACTION
A tool for finding and extracting word concoradances and collocations from
text corpora. This tool as its input, is given a number of text files that
form the corpus it will work on and a given word, which is the target word.
It is information about that word that the tool will extract from the corpus.
The tool can produce the following linguistic information regarding that corpus:
a.Given a certain word it produces a list of all the concordances
of that word that appear in the text. It is possible to specify how many words to
the left and to the right of the target word we want to show in the concordances.
b.Given a certain word it finds the collocates of that word and prints
them sorted either alphabetically or by frequency.
The collocation tooll has been designed by Maria Grigoriadou, Associate Professor of Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, University of Athens and implemented by Bekiaris Dimitrios and Voutsis Dimitrios, as their undergraduate project in Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, University of Athens, under supervision of PhD Candidate Blitsas Panagiotis.
