1. PhoneticsIPA

PhoneticsIPA is a windows Text Editor that allows the user to type text in standard Greek orthography and convert it to IPA. It has added functionality for working with text corpora, creating dictionaries & reverse dictionaries, getting word frequencies etc. More specifically, PhoneticsIPA is a text-to-phones algorithm and environment for phonological analysis and transcription that allows the user to convert text to IPA (Standard Modern Greek and Cypriot Greek). The Cypriot Greek output of the PhoneticsIPA is shown in the column entitled Προφορά of the Cypriot Greek Dictionary (see below for more information about the webpage).

2. POS Taggers

Taggers allow the automatic labelling of corpora with Part of Speech labels.:

  • Ancient Greek Tagger for tagging (adding POS labels) on Ancient Greek Texts and creating Ancient Greek corpora.
  • Modern Greek Tagger for tagging SMG texts.
  • English Tagger that includes a morphological dictionary and a disambiguation algorithm for discriminating nouns and verbs.

3. Lexicography Software

These include Graphical User Interphases (GUIs) for creating and viewing electronic dictionary, reverse algorithms for creating reverse dictionaries. A dictionary environment currently it includes a dictionary I created with Ancient Greek irregular verbs. The taggers and the Lexicography software are currently not freely available from the website.

4.  A Quick Look Plugin for viewing Praat script files and TextGrids in OS X
