Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: British National Corpus Indexer available for download
Submitter: Antonio Moreno Ortiz
Description: Dear list members,

BNC Indexer is a tool for those who want/need to use the BNC (British National Corpus) under Microsoft Windows (9x/NT/2000). The BNC distribution provides a software tool (SARA) that can select subsets of the corpus for analysis based on a number of parameters, such as domain, mode, author age/sex/type, etc. This tool, however, is available only
for Unix users.

BNC Indexer allows you to select sets of files based on any number of the BNC's original parameters, plus a genre classification developed by David Lee (david_lee00@hotmail.com), using a simple, user-friendly interface. You can also view any BNC file after it has been selected, as well as export file lists for processing in other applications.

BNC Indexer is FREEWARE, so you can use it free of charge for as long as you want. Please read the License Agreement in BNC Indexer's Help file. I appreciate your comments and suggestions (especially if they're positive!).

For more info and downloads, visit BNC Indexer's site: http://webdeptos.uma.es/filifa/personal/amoreno/indexer

...hope you find it useful!
