NooJ is both a corpus processing tool and a linguistic development
environment: it allows linguists to formalize several levels of linguistic
phenomena: orthography and spelling, lexicons for simple words, multiword
units and frozen expressions, inflectional, derivational and productive
morphology, local, structural syntax and transformational syntax. For each
of these levels, NooJ provides linguists with one or more formal tools
specifically designed to facilitate the description of each phenomenon, as
well as parsing tools designed to be as computationally efficient as
possible. This approach distinguishes NooJ from most computational
linguistic tools, which provide a single formalism that should describe
everything. As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows users to apply
sophisticated linguistic queries to large corpora in order to build indices
and concordances, annotate texts automatically, perform statistical
analyses, etc.

NooJ is freely available and linguistic modules can already be downloaded
for Acadian, Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian,
French, English, German, Hebrew, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish,
Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.
