Is anyone aware of any up-to-date, linguistically sound databases for
English word frequencies, aside from Kuchera and Francis (1985)?
Thank you in advance,
I am currently researching faults specific to Czech students of English ...
specifically those related to pronunciation.
Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of (a) good Internet
resources or (b) previous studies in this field.
I am looking for a program [best, available online] which could serve as a
simple database and would be suited for dictionary-creation purposes. I
would like to ask you if you know about any downloadable program which
could help me with creating my own dictionary (i.e simple dictionary of
technical terms which I already have on paper).
I do lots of technical translations (Polish-English) and the problem is
that there is only one Polish-English (and E-P) technichnical dictionary
and it is very poor, so I was thinking of creating one on my own as the
number of my entries I keep on paper is growing enormously.
I was thinking whether there is already a dictionary software which enables
adding up more entries. Let me know.
Has any one of you tried to do something similar? Perhaps you used a spread
sheet (i.e. Excel)??
Would be glad to listen to your suggestions.
