NooJ is a linguistic development environment that includes large-coverage dictionaries and grammars, and parses corpora in real time.

      NooJ includes tools to create and maintain large-coverage lexical resources, as well as morphological and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts in order to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns and tag simple and compound words.

      NooJ can build complex concordances, with respect to all types of Finite State and Context-Free patterns.

      NooJ users can easily develop extractors to identify semantic units in large texts, such as names of persons, locations, dates, technical expressions of finance, etc.
NooJ is based on the .NET platform, which is Microsoft's answer to JAVA/J2EE. A few benefits of this architecture:

NooJ’s component architecture is an evolution of the Object Oriented architecture, that allows its public methods to be accessed by any other .NET application. NooJ recognizes over 100+ text file formats, including four Unicode encodings, all DOS/Windows/Mac/EBCDIC encodings, MS- WORD, HTML, XML, etc. All NooJ objects are XML/SOAP compliant.

NooJ runs on MS-Windows. Check out the sites below for a description of the MONO and the GNU projects that aim at providing a .NET framework for LINUX/UNIX/Free BSD/Mac OSX. This will allow NooJ to run on these platforms as well.
