Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases

This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."

Title: Creating and Digitizing Language Corpora
Subtitle: Volume 1: Synchronic Databases

Description:

A range of electronic corpora has become increasingly accessible via the
WWW and CD-ROM. This development coincided with improvements in the
standards governing the collecting, encoding and archiving of such data.
Less attention, however, has been paid to making other types of digital
data available. This is especially true of that which one might describe as
'unconventional', namely, dialects, child language and bilingual databases.
This book is a first step toward developing similar standards for enriching
and preserving these neglected resources.
