COLLECT : A Program for the Retrieval of Grammatical Information from Annotated Text.
A description of a system of computer programs to be used for syntactic analyses of the million-word File of Russian Text with Syntactic Annotations described in RM-5194-RADC. The file consists of sentences, each of which is provided with a dependency structure. To use the COLLECT system, the linguist writes a description of the class of sentences he wishes to examine, and COLLECT edits his request, searches the file, and prints a report. The system is specific for the File of Russian Text but is flexible enough to permit modifications of file information, request terminology, and report format. It is representative of a class of retrieval programs needed for many file-search tasks. (See also RM-4390, RM-4540.) 34 pp. Ref.
