We have improved the support for the Thai language in Sketch Engine. Texts which users upload or corpora created from the web using WebBootCaT, the built-in tool in Sketch Engine, will now be segmented, i.e. divided into words. This makes it possible to use the concordance, generate word lists, n-grams or calculate collocation candidates from concordance. These features will now be available for all user corpora.
Adam Kilgarriff Prize
Adam Kilgariff (1960-2015) was a British corpus linguist and founder of Lexical Computing, the company behind Sketch Engine. Adam devoted his whole life to research at the intersection of corpus linguistic, computational linguistics and lexicography.
To honour our brilliant and much-loved colleague, we established the Adam Kilgarriff Prize for outstanding work in the fields to which Adam contributed so much: corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, and lexicography.
