Word Sketch grammar (WSG) is a set of rules defining the grammatical relations (=columns/categories) in a Word Sketch. WSG is language dependent, the same WSG cannot be shared across languages. Different corpora in the same language can use the same or different WSG. Users can write their own WSG to match their specific need. Corpora in unsupported languages can make use of a universal WSG which provides only basic statistics of words surrounding the keywords ignoring the grammar of the language. The universal WSG can also be modified by the user. more»
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.
