Welcome to NooJ 2010

| Print |

The Department of Greek Philology of the Democritus University of Thrace, the Laboratory of Semio-Linguistics, Didactics and Informatics (LASELDI) of the University of Franche-Comte and the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme et l'Environnement Claude Nicolas Ledoux (MSHE Ledoux) are happy to organize the "2010 NooJ conference and workshops" 27-29 May 2010 at Komotini, GREECE. The Conference will take place in the big Amphitheater of Physical Education Department of Democritus University of Thrace

The conference has three main objectives:

  • Give NooJ users the opportunity to meet and share their experience as developers, researchers and teachers;
  • Present to researchers in Linguistics and in computational Linguistics the latest linguistic resources and NLP applications developed with NooJ, its latest functionalities, as well as its future developments;
  • Offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using NooJ.

About NooJ

| Print |

NooJ is a freeware, linguistic engineering development environment used to formalize various types of textual phenomena (orthography, lexical and productive morphology, local, structural and transformational syntax) using a large gamut of computational devices (from Finite-State Automata to Augmented Recursive Transition Networks). NooJ includes tools to construct, test, debug, maintain and accumulate large sets linguistic resources, and can apply them to large texts.
Modules for a fifteen languages are already available for free download: Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, English, French, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. A dozen other modules are under construction.

NooJ's most exclusive characteristics are:

  • NooJ can process texts and corpora in over 100+ file formats, including HTML, PDF, MS-OFFICE, all variants of UNICODE, ASCII, etc. It can import information from, and export its annotations back to XML documents.
  • NooJ's linguistic engine uses an annotation system that allows all levels of grammars to be applied to texts without modifying them; this allows linguists to formalize various phenomena independently, and to apply the corresponding grammars in cascade.
  • For instance, by combining inflection, derivation and syntactic data, NooJ can perform Harris-type transformations.
  • NooJ is used as a linguistic engineering development platform, a corpus processor, an information extraction system, a terminological extractor, an Machine Translation development tool as well as to teach linguistics and computational linguistics.
