The following are programs which allow you to assign features to
||A tool that facilitates the linguistic annotation of a text
corpora. The user specifies
multiple layers of analysis (e.g., Document, Sentence, Clause, Group,
etc.) and annotates each text at
The user can then perform search across layers (e.g., passive-clause in
english; finite-clause containing pronoun:subject).
Statistical studies can also be performed on the corpus, currently in
terms of constrastive statistics
between two subsets. CorpusTool will also produce statistics on lexical
density of texts.
Platform: Windows, MacOSX
|Description: SysFan is a computational tool that
the systemic-functional analysis of texts. SysFan allows you to analyse
the texts lexicogrammatically by making selections from menus, fields
networks, and saves the records into a database, which can then be
modified or searched. The search results can be statistically displayed
or exported to those in a form compatible to statistical packages such
as MS Word, or Microsoft Excel.
Platforms: Macintosh, Windows
|Description: Systemics is designed to allow efficient
discourse analysis of text from the perspective of Systemic Functional
Linguistics (SFL). Systemics is designed to be used for both academic
postgraduate research and also for the teaching of SFL in undergraduate
and postgraduate courses. However, as the pre-programmed grammar in
can be modified, the discourse analysis undertaken with this software
incorporate other theoretical perspectives.
Platforms: All platforms.
Available: From March 2002.
Cost: ASEAN Countries: $SGD60 ($SGD45 for students).
US $45/AUD $65.

||Description: A tool for coding text examples, or for
KPML grammars. One can type in individual sentences, or specify a text
file to load, with segment boundaries indicated. Results can be saved
later processing. One can use either an existing KPML (see below)
or write your own.
Platforms: Windows, Linux/Unix (On Linux/Unix requires
Allegro Common Lisp (4.3 or better) and the Common Lisp Interface
(CLIM 2.0 or better) are required to compile and run this source)
