Qs: Computing Biber Ling Features;Interpreting Corpora

Editor for this issue: Naomi Fox <foxlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Tool to compute Biber's features

Subject: Tool to compute Biber's features

Dear linguists,

I'm a researcher in computational linguistics and I'm looking for a tool
which computes the 67 linguistic features (or most of them) presented by
Douglas Biber in his book 'Variation across speech and writing', for any text.

Such features count the number of private/public verbs, past tenses, 1st
person pronouns, by-passives phrases, etc. As many papers use those
features such a tool must exist, but I can't find any on the web.

Thanks a lot!

I am interestes in corpus-based error analysis in conference interpreting.
I would be grateful for any ideas of how to implement corpus-based error
analysis in conference interpreting into conference interpreting classes.
The goal is to develop corpus-based exercises concerning error correction
in schools of interpreting.

Thank you for any contribution.
