We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Hello,

I am looking for a way to extract word combinations from a Corpus of Academic
Articles. Basically, I have extracted keywords and want to now extract word
combinations of these keywords. The keyword list is about 1,300 words from a
corpus of 140 texts. To do this, I probably need some kind of algorithm
(software). If there is anyone who can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

My impression is that to do this I might have to use a lot of computer memory. 
Mathematically speaking, it is something like this: 1,300 x 1,300 = 1,690,000
possible combinations; to look up each one of these combinations in 140 texts
throws up a grand total of 236.6000.000 searches.

Help!

Thanks,

Dear colleagues,

I am wondering whether anyone of you is aware of any recent substantial reviews
or evaluative information on the quality of web-based online linguistic courses
(other than user feedback) like those posted in
http://linguistlist.org/issues/16/16-3103.html

Any information appreciated, thank you.

Best wishes
