    Dear list members,

    the TIGERSearch treebank query tool is now available for download:

    TIGERSearch is a specialized search engine for syntactically annotated corpora (treebanks).


    * linguistically motivated query language (similar to typed feature-based grammar formalisms)

    * sophisticated graphical user interface (TIGERGraphViewer) for browsing the query results

    * corpus samplers from PennTreebank, NEGRA, TIGER, DEREKO, Susanne, Christine, Penn-Helsinki Parsed Corpus of Middle English, VerbMobil

    * graphical registry tool (TIGERRegistry) for easy corpus administration

    * XML-import of corpora Import filters are available for the corpora mentioned above.

    * XML- and SVG-animation-export of query results Sample XSLT-stylesheets for the creation of other formats are included.

    * available for all major platforms which support Java 1.3: Microsoft Windows, Solaris, Linux, and Mac OS X.

    The development of TIGERSearch has been funded by the TIGER project (DFG) and the DEREKO project (Land Baden-Wuerttemberg).
