QuickAssist

QuickAssist is an application that is intended to assist language learners read texts in a foreign language. Users can copy any text into the application and use a number of tools to quickly access information on the lexical items in the text.

Right now, QuickAssist is only available for German.

The following tools are available:
  • dictionary lookup

  • thesaurus lookup

  • concordance view (shows the word in different contexts)

  • morphological information on the lexical item selected

  • information on common neighbours and on its frequency

If you are interested in reading all there is to know about QuickAssist, please refer to my PhD thesis which is publicly available.

Mocha

This is work in progress. We currently have a user interface to query the google n-gram corpus of German books and a sandbox to test complexity and accuracy measures.
