[Corpora-List] The global CQPweb family

At the distinct risk of boring list members who do not care about these things….

That yeda.cs.technion.ac.il site is not “using a web interface developed in-house”; it’s using a lightly modified version of CQPweb v3.0 with a new (and false) copyright attribution in the footer.

In fact, the original copyright mark is still there but commented out in the HTML:

<!--td align="left" class="cqpweb_copynote" width="33%">

CQPweb v3.0.7 &#169; 2008-2012

</td--> [...]

<p>Copyright (c) 2012 HebrewCQPweb.com. All rights reserved. Design by <a href="http://www.freecsstemplates.org">FCT</a>.</p>

Of course, HebrewCQPweb.com does not own any of the code apart from their own modifications.

However, I will presume that the claiming of copyright over the system is an unintentional stumble arising from a misunderstanding of the terms of the GNU General Public Licence under which the code to CWB and CQPweb is distributed, rather than an intentional attempt at theft of intellectual property!

To add Hebrew to the picture:

The Knowledge Center for Processing Hebrew (MILA) has made available 11 of its corpora for search with CQP, using a web interface developed in-house. Credit to all developers is given on the website:

Actually, four days ago, I split the bookmarked URLs into two sections on my CQPweb family page (http://www.bfsu-corpus.org/content/cqpweb-family), considering their respective development histories. Thank you too for adding the referral link on the CWB website.

To chime in on this slightly late, it’s worth noting that, like some of the later suggestions made in replies, not all of the systems on the original list actually use CQPweb: some use an alternative web-interface built around CWB/CQP. For instance, IntelliText is CWB/CQP based but does not use CQPweb.

This might seem like splitting hairs but classing these as “CQPweb” misallocates the credit for a lot of hard work on the part of their developers…

But thank you very much for compiling this extremely useful list. I have added a link from the CWB website (see http://cwb.sourceforge.net/demos.php#public ), and I hope later to add a more extensive set of links to public-access CQPweb servers elsewhere on the site.

Dear Corpora List members,

I've just collated the information of corpus portals using the CQPweb infrasturcture. http://www.bfsu-corpus.org/content/cqpweb-family

Are you aware of any other CQPweb sites which are not on the list?
