Towards standards for corpus query: Work on a Lingua Franca for corpus query

Elena Frick, Piotr Bański, Andreas Witt; Proceedings of KONVENS 2012 (SFLR 2012 workshop), pp. 518-518, September 2012.


In this presentation, we report about the ongoing work on the development of a standard for corpus query languages. This work takes place in the context of the ISO TC37/SC4 WG6 activity on the suggested work item proposal „Corpus Query Lingua Franca“ (Bański and Witt, 2011). We have collected a set of requirements on a corpus query language motivated by the needs of linguists and we will present the initial ideas for the First Committee Draft.
