Considerations for the Reusability of Linguistic Software

Jean Véronis and Nancy Ide, CNRS


MULTEXT joined efforts with the EAGLES sub-group on Tools, established in spring 1995 (in the last phase of the EAGLES project), to address linguistic software reusability and work toward the establishment of Guidelines for Linguistic Software Development. This document reports on the first phase of the work and outlines general goals and principles for the development of the guidelines.



This document results from joint effort of the European projects EAGLES (in particular, the EAGLES Tools subgroup) and MULTEXT. The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) has also supported the integration effort.
