Subject: Consortium for Lexical Research


The Consortium for Lexical Research is designed to serve as a
repository for software and resources of importance to the linguistics
and natural language processing research community.

Sharable resources, and the task of centralizing lexical data and
tools, are of foremost concern in lexical research and computational
linquistics. It is our objective to help alleviate the repeated
re-creation of basic software tools, and to assist in making essential
data sources more generally available.

 * (postscript) or "catalog" (ascii). *
 ***********************************************

If you have developed a piece of software for computational
linguistics or natural language processing that other researchers
might find useful, you can include it in the CLR archives by returning
the following description form. We would be very pleased to review
your contribution.

John Lawler has been kind enough to allow me upload the Macintosh software
that I demonstrated at the recent LSA software poster session. It is in
/linguistics/software/mac/grammar-and-trees-10.hqx. I've included a
description below.

Grammar and Trees 1.0
Description:
Grammar and Trees is a HyperCard stack which contains a context free phrase
structure parser and a method for drawing trees from labelled brackettings.
This stack is designed as an aid for students to explore context free phrase
structure grammars, and particularly to see the relationship between rules and
trees. In addition to the stack itself, some sample exercises are included.

Requirements: HyperCard 2.1 or later, or HyperCard Player

Price: Grammar and Trees is shareware ($10).
