Reports and Discussion Language Independent Statistical Software for Corpus Exploration

By John Sinclair, Oliver Mason, Jackie Ball and Geoff Barnbrook


Abstract. In this report two programs for statistical analysis of concordance lines are described. The programs have been developed for analysing the lexical context of a given word. It is shown how different parameter settings influence the outcome of collocational analysis, and how the concept of collocation can be extended to allow the extraction of lines typical for a word from a set of concordance lines. Even though all the examples are for English, the software is completely language independent and only requires minimal linguistic resources. 1
