Any help would be appreciated.

A student of mine, who doesn't have access to e-mail at present,
urgently needs to contact Sandra E. Hutchins. If anyone knows where
she is based and has an e-mail or snail-mail address for her, please
let me know.
Many thanks,

Message 3: interactive computer-assisted parsing

Date: Sat, 23 Oct 1993 02:25:51 interactive computer-assisted parsing
From: "James K. Tauber" <jtaubertartarus.uwa.edu.au>
Subject: interactive computer-assisted parsing

Can anyone point me towards available software that assists
hand parsing text syntactically? What I have in mind is a program
that would enable the user to add labelled bracketting to a text.

The program could keep track of the constituent structures and begin
to make bottom-up parsing suggestions on the basis of what it has
learnt from `watching' the human. Recall that every labelled bracket
gives rise to a context-free phrase structure rule. The user could
put the cursor on either an atomic word or non-terminal symbol and
the computer could list all the rules whose RHS is consistent with
the text from that point on.

The user could then select the correct rule to apply out of
those suggested or add a labelled bracket manually, hence teaching
the computer a new grammar rule.

If nothing like this is available, I'll get around to writing my own.

Thanks

Subject: French corpus

I am looking for a French corpus, preferably with high content of business
terms. Any other French text data in electronic form is also of interest.

If you know of any such data please send mail to : mepikmcimail.com
