I am looking for a wordlist which includes single-word entries and their part-of-speech tags in UCREL CLAWS7 format.

The list must be comprised of scientifically collected data, for example words collected from COCA or BNC data.

Ideally, the list will also include frequency data.

Here is an example of the type of thing I am looking for: http://www.wordfrequency.info/100k.asp

The purpose is to create a dictionary to be used for dynamic disambiguation of grammar on the front-end of a website.

  • Which language? – lemontree May 17 '17 at 12:02
  • @lemontree CLAWS7 suggests English, because it is a pos tagset for English. – jk - Reinstate Monica May 17 '17 at 13:19
  • Why don't you do it by yourself? The BNC is downloadable and you can feed it into your favourite corpus processing tool (or write a simple script) to extract such a wordlist. – jk - Reinstate Monica May 17 '17 at 13:26
  • Yes, it is in English. The problem is my inability to afford a license. I operate outside of academia and so I cannot access the download link via Shibboleth. This also means that I cannot view the data in order to determine which software would be appropriate, or whether it would provide me with an extensive list, due to ambiguity resulting from automation. – Joshua Flood May 17 '17 at 19:56
  • In case it helps to clarify, I would like a compiled list in a similar format to the 'frequency' results table found here: corpus.byu.edu/bnc – Joshua Flood May 17 '17 at 20:00
