|About the SEAlang Library Maranao Text Corpus|
|This mononlingual corpus consists of Maranao texts extracted from:|
-- more than 4,000 translated example sentences from A Maranao Dictionary (McKaughan and Al-Macaraya, 1996, De La Salle University and the Summer Institute of Linguistics).
|- context searches show how the search target appears in context, taking both leading and trailing collocates (or neighboring words) into account. This search returns a merged list of leading and trailing collocates.|
|- collocate searches are better for focusing on the search target's immediate neighbor. This search returns separate lists of leading and trailing collocates.|
|- merged view allows for fast switching between collocate and context views. Try brief first - downloaded pages may be very large, and a slow browser may fall behind in displaying the detailed view. The Go! button invokes the brief view.|
|- raw contexts show the search word in context without any attempt at analysis or sanity-checking (local segmentation that helps ensure that a real word has been found).|
restrict collocates requires (or forbids) all collocates to have at least
one sense with a particular part of speech or usage.
|Because the underlying text corpus may be quite large, results may be taken from a random sample of hits. For common words, this means that sample contexts and exact collocate frequencies will vary from run to run.|
Clicking on a word/collocate with the mouse starts a new search:
searches for contexts, and
searches for collocates.
