This page is for language-independent resources for computational natural language processing.
Language-independent General Meta-resources that are not specific to NLP have their own page.
For metadata standards and infrastructure see the General Meta-resources page.
- An Crúbadán: Corpus building for minority languages. Web crawling software “designed to exploit the vast quantities of text freely available on the web as a way of bringing the benefits of statistical NLP to languages with small numbers of speakers and/or limited computational resources.” Kevin P. Scannell. [Mamandel 00:25, 14 May 2010 (UTC)]
- Apertium. A free/open-source rule-based machine translation platform offering free linguistic data (morphological analysers, bilingual dictionaries, etc.) in XML formats for a range of languages.
- Foma. “a compiler, programming language, and C library for constructing finite-state automata and transducers for various uses. It has specific support for many natural language processing applications such as producing morphological analyzers.”
- Foma: a finite-state compiler and library. Hulden, Mans. 2009. Proceedings of the EACL 2009 Demonstrations Session, pages 29–32, Athens, Greece, 3 April 2009. PDF
- Helsinki Finite-State Transducer Technology (HFST). A free/open-source rewrite of the Xerox finite-state tools. It provides an implementation both of the
- Universal Networking Language (UNL). “an artificial language for representing, describing, summarizing, refining, storing and disseminating information in a natural-language-independent format. It is a kind of mark-up language which represents not the formatting but the core information of a text. As HTML annotations can be realized differently in the context of different applications, machines, displays, etc., so UNL expressions can have different realizations in different human languages.”
- VISL Constraint Grammar. A free/open-source software reimplementation and extension of Fred Karlsson's Constraint Grammar formalism.
- Machine Translation Archive. “Electronic repository and bibliography of articles, books and papers on topics in machine translation, computer translation systems, and computer-based translation tools. Latest update: 30 April 2011 [now containing over 7700 items]” [2011-05-10]
“aims to cover comprehensively English-language publications since 1990. Papers and books from previous years are being added in order to provide good coverage from the beginnings of MT in the 1950s to 1990.”
