 Natural Language Software Registry

 ******************************
 * 2nd EDITION NOW AVAILABLE *
 ******************************

The Registry team is proud to announce the 2nd edition of the Natural
Language Software Registry. Its purpose is to facilitate the exchange
and evaluation of natural language processing software within the research
community. To this end, the Natural Language Software Registry is
cataloging natural language software projects, both commercial and non-
commercial. The new updated and enlarged version contains more than 100
descriptions of natural processing software. Registry listings include:

+ speech signal processors, such as the Computerized Speech Lab
 (Kay Electronics)
+ morphological analyzers, such as PC-KIMMO
 (Summer Institute for Linguistics)
+ parsers, such as Alveytools (University of Edinburgh)
+ semantic and pragmatic analyzer, such as NLL
 (University of the Saarland, Germany)
+ generation programs, such as FUF
 (Ben Gurion University of the Negev)
+ knowledge representation systems, such as Rhet
 (University of Rochester)
+ multicomponent systems, such as ELU (ISSCO), PENMAN (ISI),
 Pundit (UNISYS), SNePS (SUNY Buffalo),
+ NLP-Tools, such as GULP (University of Georgia) or Linguist
 (Kansai Research Laboratory)
+ applications programs (misc.)

We are most thankful to these and other research teams who have
taken the time to document their achievements.

If you have developed a piece of software for natural language
processing that other researchers might find useful, you can include it
by returning the questionnaire available from the sources below.

In the coming months, the Registry team will also be involved in
a study of linguistic software repositories for the European Community.
Researchers who regard their systems as potential EC resources are
encouraged to contact us for consideration of their software in this
pilot study.
