Call for Proposals
- ----------------

Oxford University Press (Trade and Reference Department) is pleased to
announce a call for research proposals which make use of OUP's
extensive range of monolingual and bilingual dictionaries,
thesauruses, subject reference material and related resources - at no
cost to you. Proposals are welcomed from individuals and research
teams in the academic community, and will be judged by our expert
panel according to research excellence and innovative use and
development of resources.

Proposals are due by 31 July 2003. 

Please see for more
details. Sample material is available for pre-proposal testing. A
short application form must be submitted, along with a description of
the proposed research project. The results of the review process will
be made available during October 2003. We look forward to getting some
interesting proposals.

We have recently undertaken a lot of work on our ''Oxford Dictionary
of English'' (ODE) data set with over 170,000 entries covering all
varieties of English worldwide. The ODE data set constitutes a fully
integrated range of formal data types suitable for language
engineering and NLP applications. Please ask for more details.

If you'd like to make commercial use of data or have any other
questions, please get in touch with
