Dear List Subscribers,
In March I posted a request for any information available on medical
dictionaries & text available electronically. This is the list of responses I
received. THANK YOU TO ALL for the time you took to help!

******************************
We have developed a bilingual dictionary of the most frequently used words
in the medical lexis (English to Spanish) in cooperation with the computer
department of the California State University at Fullerton. Said instrument
is called R1*TUTOR written in C++. The work is the beginning of MT
translation of abstracts of medical literature. We hope to present the work
at ACL94 at Las Cruces in June-July, 1994.

The vector of English medical terms came from 6 different published studies
we having been working on since 1985. The material is electronically
available but IS NOT in the public domain.

The methodology of finding the most frequently used medical terms is
available
and if you are interested in creating your own work we will be more than
happy to supply you with the tools.

I don't know if this qualifies as a corpus, but do you think that medline
might suit your purposes? Ther is an enormous amount of text in it. I'm not
sure if any sstring ssearches can be done on it, but certainly it is richly
indexed by keywords.

The best person I know to talk to would be Catherine Macleod, who worked on
this type of electronic dictionary. She can be reached at macleodcs.nyu.edu.
Good luck with your project!
