Qs: Word Combinations; Resources for Online Linguistics Courses

Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton <jessicalinguistlist.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: Word Combinations
Date: 05-Jul-2006
From: Keith Stuart <kstuartidm.upv.es>
Subject: Word Combinations


I am looking for a way to extract word combinations from a Corpus of Academic
Articles. Basically, I have extracted keywords and want to now extract word
combinations of these keywords. The keyword list is about 1,300 words from a
corpus of 140 texts. To do this, I probably need some kind of algorithm
(software). If there is anyone who can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

My impression is that to do this I might have to use a lot of computer memory.
Mathematically speaking, it is something like this: 1,300 x 1,300 = 1,690,000
possible combinations; to look up each one of these combinations in 140 texts
throws up a grand total of 236.6000.000 searches.

Dear colleagues,

I am wondering whether anyone of you is aware of any recent substantial reviews
or evaluative information on the quality of web-based online linguistic courses
(other than user feedback) like those posted in

Any information appreciated, thank you.

Best wishes
