Emdros is a corpus query system for storing and searching linguistically annotated text. It is very generic, supporting almost any kind of annotation from almost any linguistic theory. All linguistic levels of analysis are supported, including phonology, morphology, the lexical level, syntax, and discourse. The core libraries act as a middleware layer between a client and an underlying SQL database. MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite are supported.
