Message 2: LDC-Online: a new search and retrieval service from the LDC

Date: Tue, 20 Aug 1996 15:15:16 EDT
From: wzbunagi.cis.upenn.edu <wzbunagi.cis.upenn.edu>
Subject: LDC-Online: a new search and retrieval service from the LDC
		Introducing a New Service from the
		 Linguistic Data Consortium

LDC-Online is a new search and retrieval service, offering convenient
WWW access to the text and speech corpora of the Linguistic Data
Consortium (LDC). For more detailed information, or to try it out, see
the LDC-Online item on the LDC's home page (http://www.ldc.upenn.edu).

All LDC text and speech resources are indexed for convenient online
access, as long as no copyright or other restrictions prevent it. You
can browse (where the copyright owner permits), or search by word,
lemma or part-of-speech, or search with (limited) regular expressions
combining these elements. Statistics such as word frequency and mutual
information between words are also available.

Retrieved speech can be displayed or played via a Java applet (for
users with Java-aware browsers). A Netscape "helper application" is
also available for transferring speech to other programs such as
Entropic's waves+.

LDC-Online is free to researchers at current LDC member institutions.
An interactive tutorial is available to members and non-members
alike, as is a guest account permitting access to the Brown text
corpus and the TIMIT speech corpus.
