|Systemic Coder||Mick O'Donnell||A tool that facilitates the linguistic coding of text. The user is
prompted to categorise each text segment in terms of a system network,
which the user provides. The tool provides an interface for easy
segmentation, and another for graphical construction/editing of the system
network. The Review interface allows you to retrieve all segments which
have a given feature or logical combination of features. The statistical
interface provides descriptive statistics on your codings, or statistical
comparisons between subsets of the codings. Codings can also be exported
in a form readable by statistical packages Available for immediate
Platform: Windows (except 3.1), Macintosh, Linux/Unix.
|SysFan||Christian Matthiessen, |
|Description: SysFan is a computational tool that facilitates
the systemic-functional analysis of texts. SysFan allows you to analyse
the texts lexicogrammatically by making selections from menus, fields or
networks, and saves the records into a database, which can then be
browsed, modified or searched. The search results can be statistically
displayed or exported to those in a form compatible to statistical
packages such as MS Word, or Microsoft Excel. |
Platforms: Macintosh only.
|Description: Systemics is designed to allow efficient and
comprehensive discourse analysis of text from the perspective of Systemic
Functional Linguistics (SFL). Systemics is designed to be used for both
academic and postgraduate research and also for the teaching of SFL in
undergraduate and postgraduate courses. However, as the pre-programmed
grammar in Systemics can be modified, the discourse analysis undertaken
with this software can incorporate other theoretical perspectives.
Platforms: All platforms.
Available: From March 2002.
Cost: To be announced.

|RSTTool||Mick O'Donnell||Description: A tool for marking up the rhetorical structure of
texts, graphically (in terms of Mann, Thompson and Matthiessen's RST
theory). Simple statistics about the use of the relations in the text can
be obtained. You can use the Mann & Thompson set of relations, or make
Platforms: All platforms.
|Grammar Explorer||John Bateman||Description: A tool for coding text examples, or for exploring
KPML grammars. One can type in individual sentences, or specify a text
file to load, with segment boundaries indicated. Results can be saved for
later processing. One can use either an existing KPML (see below) grammar,
or write your own. |
Platforms: Windows, Linux/Unix (On Linux/Unix requires Franz Allegro Common Lisp (4.3 or better) and the Common Lisp Interface Manager (CLIM 2.0 or better) are required to compile and run this source)
|Description: KPML is a Systemic Text Generation system and
grammar development environment. It is an extension on the Penman text
generation syste, developed at Information Sciences Institute (ISI) in Los
Angeles (principal architects Bill Mann and Christian Matthiessen). John
Bateman took over the system in the early 90s, and extended it to be
multilingual, and has vastely improved the grammar editing environment.
Grammars have been developed for German (Elke Teich, Brigite Brote, ...),
KPML offers sentence generation from a semantic input (SPLs). Graphing of system networks, systemic structures, etc. Can handle multiple grammars simultaneously.Platform: Unix, Linux, Windows.

|WAG||Mick O'Donnell||Description: WAG (Workbench for Analysis and Generation) is a
system for generating sentences from a semantic specification. WAG was a
re-engineering of the Penman system, improving some of the problems in
that system (for instance, declarative inter-stratal mapping). WAG
includes its own knowledge representation engine, similar to LOOM, that
used in Penman, but more systemic-based.
WAG has been used for grammars in English, Spanish, Italian and Greek, although only on a small scale (however, KPML offers much more in regards to multilingual processing). WAG forms the core of the ILEX system, both for KR and sentence generation. It was also originally the core of the M-Piro system, until replaced by a re-implementation of WAG into Java by Jo Calder. WAG is not currently maintained for release, but may be released in the future, when the authore gets some free time.

|Multex 2.0||Systemic Meaning Modelling Group||Description: Multex is a high-performance multilingual and
multimodal text planner. Multex 2.0 is an integrated environment for
testing out text planning process, and for visually developing grammar.
Many new exciting features have been implemented in this new version.
Platform: Macintosh. |

|Description:The Computational Linguistics Unit, Cardiff University have developed a sentence generation system called Communal. It doesn't generate from semantic input, but rather requires the user to traverse the system network, choosing a feature at each point. Large semantic-oriented network, called Genesys|
|FUF||Michael Elhadad||Description: FUF is a generalised unification tool. For text
generation, it uses the SURGE grammar (Systemic Unification Realization
Grammar of English), which is a mixture of Halliday and HPSG.
