Glossa - a search and post-processing tool

Glossa is a tool for researchers who want to search linguistically annotated corpora. Glossa is designed to make it easy for researchers to:

  • create complex searches
  • explore the result sets
  • create statistics based on the result sets
  • edit and save the result sets

Glossa can be used for both monolingual and multilingual corpora, and for written and spoken language (including audio and video). No installation of software or downloading of the corpus is required; the program is entirely online and can be used through a standard web browser.


New version of Glossa

The Text Laboratory has developed a new version of the search and post-processing tool Glossa.
