DIMAP Lite for Windows (April 13, 2011) DIMAP Lite contains all the dictionary creation, maintenance, and analysis functionality of the full version, including regular expression searches over all fields, subdictionary creation based on matches, uploading dictionary data, dictionary downloading to user specifications, automatic dictionary creation from texts, and integrated WordNet lookup. It does not contain definition parsing capability (including consistency checks with WordNet), dictionary digraph analysis, and dictionary comparison and mapping. DIMAP dictionaries for WordNet, the UMLS Specialist Lexicon, and FrameNet (see below) and for the 120,000 words and 250,000 definitions of Webster's Revised International Dictionary (in the DIMAP dictionaries directory) are available for free. (Note that these dictionaries are large and may take up to 30 seconds to load. You can establish one of these dictionaries as an Auxiliary Dictionary under File|Preferences to facilitate lookup with Ctrl-A.) Other dictionaries (the New Oxford Dictionary of English and The Macquarie Dictionary) are available under academic or commercial research license agreements. After registering, you download an installation executable which installs DIMAP Lite on the Windows Start Menu; sample dictionaries are provided.
CL Research - Proximity Technology Parser This demo is a fully operational version of the parser that underlies CL Research technologies for definition parsing, word-sense disambiguation, question-answering, discourse analysis, information extraction, text mining, and text summarization. In the demo, you can type or paste and then parse any sentence to see the parse tree results upon which further analysis is performed. The demo files include an HTML file describing the non-terminal and terminal (part-of-speech) nodes in the parse tree. Download and unzip the file and run the executable. (Note that the parses in Windows 10 do not characterize all the properties of the nodes in the parse tree. We are investigating this situation (6/15/20).)
XML Analyzer The XML Analyzer was designed principally to investigate texts processed into XML format by the DIMAP text processor for question answering in TREC 2002. The full set of XML renderings for documents answering the TREC 2002 questions are available from NIST (further details upon request). A sample XML file is provided, along with instructions for examining particular aspects of the text.
Alphabetic WordNet 3.0 An alphabetic version of WordNet was created to assist the construction of customized dictionaries using the WordNet distribution. See the full description of how the alphabetic version of WordNet 3.0 was created, then follow the link here to register your download.
UMLS Specialist Lexicon The UMLS Specialist Lexicon (2009) has been totally converted into alphabetical format into a DIMAP dictionary. The Specialist Lexicon of the Unified Medical Language System is designed for the specialized lexical needs of medical community. This lexicon contains over 385,000 terms and was developed to provide the lexical information needed for the SPECIALIST Natural Language Processing System. Alphabetic DIMAP dictionaries have been created for 371,000 main entries, as well as for a variants dictionary of 225,000 entries. These dictionaries provide comprehensive coverage of general English, in addition to the extensive coverage of biomedical terms. The data elements in the lexicon describe syntactic characteristics of each entry, including inflection codes, case, gender, syntactic category, complements for verbs and nouns, modification types for adverbs, and more. This is lexicon was developed as a free, publicly available resource, with only moderate restrictions (e.g., you can't claim it as your own). The DIMAP distribution includes an extensive help file that describes how each element of Specialist has been handled, along with the Perl scripts used to create the files uploaded into DIMAP.
FrameNet Explorer for Windows (Last updated: August 9, 2011) FrameNet Explorer allows (1) examination of the FrameNet frames, frame elements, and lexical units, (2) extracting samples of frames and annotations, and (5) converting FrameNet data to other representations, including an alphabetic FrameNet DIMAP dictionary that includes lexical units, frames, and frame relations data. This program operates only in Windows (developed in Windows 7, but likely to work on earlier or later versions of Windows). Running the program assumes you have obtained the FrameNet distribution and have unzipped the files to the default directories. See Instructions for Using CL Research FrameNet Explorer for more details. These instructions are included in the distribution as well.
Alphabetic FrameNet Dictionary The FrameNet 1.5 data have been converted into an alphabetic dictionary. This dictionary contains 11053 entries, with 8568 entries for lexical items (many having multiple senses with different parts of speech) and 2485 entries that encode the frames and frame relations. Details of these items can be found through the main FrameNet site. The help file accompanying the FrameNet Dictionary provides a more detailed description of the dictionary and how it was constructed.
MCCALite for Windows A light version of MCCA, without addition of reference groups, more sophisticated statistical analyses, or ability to modify the MCCA dictionary. Suitable for analyses and comparisons of sets of texts (from sentences to books) and multi-person transcripts, including plays, focus groups, interviews, hearings, and TV scripts. The download is an installation executable. After running it to install MCCALite on the Windows Start Menu, you can perform an immediate analysis of Hamlet or the text on which McTavish & Pirro was based.
