Download ICETree 2
ICETree 2 is a dedicated software package written at the Survey of English Usage for developing ICE corpora.
ICETree allows researchers to build and manipulate syntactic trees.
WHAT DOES ICETREE DO?
Using ICETree, you can view, build or manipulate syntactic trees for sentences, phrases or other groups of words. ICETree has been used to build the parse trees for the ICE-GB corpus.
Using ICETree, you can add nodes to a tree or remove them, relink nodes or even whole branches of the tree, edit or add information in the nodes or view trees, zoom and collapse and expand branches.
WHO CAN MAKE USE OF ICETREE?
ICETree will be of use to researchers building language corpora. The software was written for the ICE copora but, with some changes to data files that accompany the program, it can be used on other corpora.
WHAT DO I NEED TO RUN ICETREE?
The most important thing that you will need is a language corpus! ICETree can be used to build trees from scratch but is best used to edit existing data, such as the output from an automatic parser.
When building trees from scratch, ICETree will display a flat structure which you can then manipulate into a full parsed tree. The graphical interface of ICETree will help you to see the structure of the tree as you build it.
ICETree runs on PCs under Windows 3.1 or 95. Minimum specifications to run the software are a 386 Processor and 4MB of RAM.
WHAT IS IN THE TRIAL VERSION?
The trial version is a full, working copy of the program but it is limited to 10 minute sessions. After each 10 minute session, the program will close itself.
The trial version comes with a test corpus - a small collection of trees for you to practise on.
HOW MUCH DOES THE FULL VERSION COST AND HOW CAN I ORDER IT?
The full version of ICETree is available at a cost of 99 UK pounds from the Survey of English Usage. Please email the Survey to arrange your order.
