Lexa 6.0

Description: Lexa is a suite of programs for the linguistic analysis of text corpora. It is particularly appropriate for the Helesinki Corpus of English Texts though it can be used with any corpus which employs the COCOA markup scheme. The suite consists of numerous tools including the main program, Lexa, which permits the user to lemmatise any input ASCII texts, to create frequency lists of the types and tokens occurring in any loaded text, to generate lexical density tables, and to transfer textual data in a user-defined manner to a database environment; Lexa Text, a simple text edirot for input and output files; Lexa Pat, a pattern matching module; and a number of database management tools designed to work with dBASE formats. A font module permits the display of special characters found in Old and Middle English texts. In addition, there is the option of specifying a user font with both text editors and database managers which allows the full ASCII set and a further 256 user-defined symbols.

Requirements: PC running DOS or Windows 3.1 or higher, at least 4MB RAM.
