The Lexicon and Grammaticon

ICECUP 3.1 has two new overview tools, the Lexicon and Grammaticon. Like the Corpus Map, they are a way of viewing different corpus queries as a hierarchical structure.

You can define your own lexicon view of any lexical or word class element, e.g. a lexicon of pronouns or of words matching ‘prett*’ (below). You can ask ICECUP to subdivide the lexicon into sections, e.g. by part of speech or initial letter.

The lexicon

The Grammaticon is similar to the Lexicon. While the Lexicon lets you explore any word or word class element, the Grammaticon provides an overview of any grammatical node in the corpus. Using this tool, you can see, for example, how different types of clauses are subdivided.
