Ciao is a complete Prolog system subsuming ISO-Prolog with a novel modular design which allows both restricting and extending the language. Ciao extensions currently include feature terms (records), higher-order, functions, constraints, objects, persistent predicates, a good base for distributed execution (agents), and concurrency. Libraries also support WWW programming, sockets, and external interfaces (C, Java, TCL/Tk, relational databases, etc.). An Emacs-based environment, a stand-alone compiler, and a toplevel shell are also provided.
ssct is a command-line utility, humble of intent, that takes a single word, spell checks it, takes the result(s) and then translates them. It works to/from english only. From/to languages are limited by ispell in the first instance, and by the IDP (Internet Dictionary Project) files in the second. Currently the latter includes Spanish, Portuguese (minimal), Latin, German, French and Italian. These files are included with this package. This utility was originally created to make it easier to decode badly-scrawled postcards from Spain.
WordNet® is an on-line lexical reference system whose design is inspired by current psycholinguistic theories of human lexical memory. English nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are organized into synonym sets, each representing one underlying lexical concept. Different relations link the synonym sets.
xgrk provides the possibility to change keyboard mapping with alt-shift or meta-shift combinations or by clicking on the flag image. You will be able to write greek in X programs like netscape or xedit. Keycodes are auto-loaded on startup so it should work with all unices and keyboard layouts. Fonts are not included.
This is a comprehensive "word game" word list for UNIX/Linux. It is a superset of the author's ENABLE list, the "OSW", and various lists researched by the author's colleague, Alan Beale. At 264,093 words, it is the largest list of its kind, suitable for use in all manners of crossword-type board games and word construction games, as well as for a spell checker dictionary. The YAWL package now includes two anagramming utilities (supplied as source code, handled by the included Makefile). There is also a shell script that extends the UNIX "strings" system command. This is the word list package recommended for the author's Quackey word game.
Saxogram is a script which generates vocabulary lists from texts written in foreign languages. So far it has dictionaries for Latin, German, and Italian. Saxogram was written with extensibility in mind. Thus, other languages can be "plugged in" as modules. All that is needed is a dictionary and a small amount of code. The purpose of the program is to speed up language learning. Too much time is spent looking up every third word. This isn't practical when learning a new language. Generating a vocabulary list that can be used in parallel to ones reading is helpful.
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.
