Hi, Irina    I have just made a tool  for keyword extraction (LanA-Key)  which includes collapsing n-grams.  It outputs up to 4-grams, but it can be updated to any "n"   The tool can be downloaded for a 3 day free trial from   http://lanaconsult.com

Dear all,

I was wondering whether anybody is aware of ideas and/or automated processes to reduce n-gram output by solving the common problem that shorter n-grams can be fragments of larger structures (e.g. the 5-gram 'at the end of the' as part of the 6-gram 'at the end of the day')

I am only aware of Paul Rayson's work on c-grams (collapsed-grams).

Many thanks,

Irina Dahlmann
