E-mail this message to a friend

Linguistic-mode is an Emacs package that can be found in the MELPA repository. It allows to carry out basic corpus analysis tasks, which include word and n-gram frequencies as well as collocation and concordance. This is a good tool to introduce new corpus linguistics students to the field and to Emacs.

The mode is still being worked on and will be improved as time goes on (sentence analysis, a snowball stemmer and computation time improvement are in the workings). Contributions to its development and any feedback is welcome on github.

The mode can be found at:
