Qs: Lexicons Sought; Participate in 'Corpus Escrito Del Español L2'

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.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: Lexicons Sought
Date: 25-Mar-2007
From: Leonid Chindelevitch <leonidusmit.edu>
Subject: Lexicons Sought

I am looking for monolingual lexicons in text or database format, for
Germanic languages (mainly English, German and Dutch). I need them for a
project in computational linguistics, and I prefer to have something free
(although I am willing to pay a small amount for a good quality lexicon).

I need the size to be at least 50,000 words in their citation (dictionary)
form. Additional indications, such as parts of speech, or properties like
[in]transitivity, gender, etc, would be desirable, but not necessary.
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide!

receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
