Dear list members,

I would like to announce a new, corpus-based dictionary tool, DeepDict,
which can be used for lexicography or as a kind of dynamic 'Learner's
Dictionary'. DeepDict has been built using dependency tree structures from
annotated corpora. It provides lexical frames with typical complements and
modifiers, as well as statistics and example sentences, for verbs, nouns
and adjectives.

You can try out DeepDict at http://www.gramtrans.com/deepdict/. The system
covers English, German, Spanish, Danish and Portuguese and will eventually
add French, Italian, Norwegian and Swedish. It is free for low-volume use,
for a trial period of two weeks, plus for Portuguese (which uses
Linguateca's P├║blico corpus), but requires otherwise a license for regular,
institutional or commercial use.

Best regards,
Eckhard Bick
