I would like to carry out a few tests with an alignment program. I have
read the Gale and Church (1993) paper and, as you know, it comes with the
code. Before actually transcribing it:
1. Can I get it machine-readable anywhere ?
2. Will it compile and run in my PC on a Mandrake Linux ?
3. Has anyone run tests ?
4. Any other more recent or easier options ?
5. Are there any options that run in Windows (many students resist working
with anything but Windows) ?
At the moment, the actual purpose of the request is teaching, as part
of a corpus linguistics course. So it is just a demo, but I would like it
to be as real-life-like as possible, and it may develop into an actual
full-fledged research initiative. Languages involved are English and
Portuguese, so far, Spanish should be included soon.
