Abstract:

This study describes the development of a large-scale corpus query system – a
specialized search engine used to perform advanced types of pattern search,
especially for patterns used by linguists interested in discovering syntactic
phenomena in large corpora.

Beginning with a review of traditional search engine algorithms, the main
focus then shifts to suffix arrays, a data structure that has been available
since 1987, but is not commonly used in large-scale search engines for various
technical reasons.

Recently developed algorithms are considered in this study as the starting
point for a new attempt to re-introduce the suffix array as a data  structure
of practical value to corpus-linguistic research. One of the key findings is a
technique that combines several suffix arrays using indexed bit vectors and
enables the searching of layers of meta information, such as part-of-speech
information and semantic labels, in parallel to searching the text. A set of
algorithms operating on that data structure is presented, enabling
sophisticated pattern matching, such as gap-matching and gap-filling, as well
as improved methods of concordance generation. The final chapters present
practical examples of how the new system is used to make linguistically
relevant discoveries in real corpora.
