Teacher Development: The Scribe Story | Xiosis Pvt. Ltd: Developer of Xiosis Scribe Word Processor | Data driven language learning | Scoop.it

Can anyone ever imagine a world without Microsoft WORD?  For Windows users, it dominates the word processor market.  OpenOffice is the next best thing, but it only serves to emulate WORD in a open source package.  There are lots of other notable word processors, like the famous WordPerfect (which seems to making a bit of a come back), but there is a new generation of word processors on the horizon that will take writing to a whole different platfrom into a paradigm I have coined 'corpus-assisted language production'.  This is a brief review of XIOSIS a word processor that refreshes writing in way that WORD can only imagine.

Teacher Development: Words and phrases: frequency, genres, collocates, concordances, synonyms, and WordNet

Great new interface by Davies to the COCA.  Makes Just-the-Word somewhat redundant.  Quite intuitive to use and mind-boggling powerful in terms of researching word use, collocation, colligation and synonyms.

An interactive instance of Beowulf (Ed. Murray McGillivray, Online Corpus of Old English Poetry (OCOEP)). Rather crude frame-based layout, but makes it easy to consult the glossary.

A.I.type - Writing Has Never Been Easier | Data driven language learning | Scoop.it

Aitype! - Writing Has Never Been Easier... if you like GOOGLE SCRIBE (when this was posted, SCRIBE had returned to http://draft.blogger.com) then you should check this tool out.  Takes a little getting used to, but it is in the family of corpus-assisted language production and can guide you as you type.  Works in any editor online or word processer, like WORD or OpenOffice.  Of course, you must be connected to the Internet for this to work, and the server can burp at times.  It has mobile device APPs as well.  Definitely the way of the future when it comes to writing.

Do you ever wonder about the stuff that makes up words? Interesting research on improving "Zipf's Law" that " says word length is primarily determined by frequency of use."
