[Corpora-List] corpora with regular expression engine (syntactic pattern)

As long as others are listing online interfaces to large corpora that do regular expressions / wildcards, I might as well mention the BYU corpora (http://corpus.byu.edu).

For example, BYU-BNC (http://corpus.byu.edu/bnc) can do "[vh*] [v?n*] [a*] [jj*] [nn*]" in less than four seconds:


And of course the interface also allows searches by synonyms, lemma, wildcards, alternates, customized word lists, and any combinations of these, etc etc

Hi Austina,

there are also a couple of online interfaces to corpora that allow for POS queries in regular expressions, such as for example:

Serge Sharoff's "Leeds CQP" search interface (English corpora available, and also corpora for other languages): http://corpus.leeds.ac.uk/internet.html

UPF's interface to CUCWeb (Catalan corpus): http://ramsesii.upf.es/cgi-bin/cucweb/search-form.pl?lang=en_US

These two interfaces are based on the IMS Open Corpus Workbench that Marco Baroni mentioned; indeed, this tool provides a module to easily build web interfaces with its core corpus processor as a back-end.

Best, Gemma.
