Subject: computer software

Hello everyone,

 Does anyone happen to know some computer software or programs that would
do parsing for English, scanning through a body of text and just counting
the instances of different sentence structures generating a statistical
spread? I want to see all the sentences grouped in a different window
 
What I want to do is to copy paste a body of movie script and sort out a
certain type of sentences like no subject sentences, SV, SVO, SVOC, SVC,
structure.

Many thanks in advance.

Computational Linguistics - what is is? I've seen some attempts at
this from various sources but I was wondering whether others might
like a stab at this? Also, what are the capabilities/aims of CL - is
HAL a possible outcome - or is HAL an AI or pure CS project - or a
mixture of all of these?
