A Corpus Processor - A Linguistic Development Environment -  A Linguistic Engine for developing Natural Language Processing software Applications.


NooJ: a linguistic development environment

⟶ Develop linguistic resources to formalize various linguistic phenomena at the orthographical, lexical, morphological, syntactic and semantic levels, for any natural language (Linguistics).
⟶ Create your own corpora of texts, apply these linguistic resources to them and then perform various statistical analyses in Corpus Linguistics and Digital Humanities.
⟶ Use NooJ's engine and linguistic resources to construct Natural Language Processing applications.

NooJ's linguistic engine offers the four types of grammars of the Chomsky hierarchy: Regular grammars, Context-Free Grammars, Context-Sensitive Grammars and Unrestricted Grammars. NooJ's parsers are optimized and can be applied to large texts in real time.

All linguistic information is represented by annotations stored in the Text Annotation Structure (TAS) which are added to, or removed from the TAS in cascade. Annotations can represent agglutinated and intra-word  linguistic units (e.g. "cannot" = <can,V> <not,ADV>), simple words (e.g. <table,N>), multiword units (e.g. <as a matter of fact,ADV>), discontinuous expressions and phrasal verbs (e.g. "turn ... off" = <turn off,PV>), as well as any syntactic (constituent or dependency) or semantic structure. Texts can be exported with its TAS to an XML file.

NooJ has been used in a dozen NLP applications, including: Text Mining, Text Information extraction, Business Intelligence, Named Entity Recognition, Paraphrase generation, Machine Translation, RDF to Text Generation, Automatic Semantic Annotation, etc.
