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.


  • 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 finite-state compiler and library. Hulden, Mans. 2009. Proceedings of the EACL 2009 Demonstrations Session, pages 29–32, Athens, Greece, 3 April 2009. PDF
  • 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.

NLP Literature

  • 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. >6400 items. Aims to be comprehensive on English-language publications since 1990; adding earlier papers and books to provide partial coverage from the 1950s.
  • OBELEX: Online Bibliography of Electronic Lexicography. Articles, monographs, anthologies, and reviews from the field of electronic lexicography with a special focus on online lexicography. Dictionaries not included, but included in a supplementary database now under construction. Search by full text, keyword, person, analysed languages, or publication year. c. 600 entries (German home page)
