NAME
       BNCFreq.pl - Compute Information	Content	based on British National
       Corpus (World Edition)

SYNOPSIS
	BNCFreq.pl [--outfile=OUTFILE [--stopfile=STOPFILE]
		[--wnpath=WNPATH] [--resnik] [--smooth=SCHEME] PATH
	       | --help	--version]

DESCRIPTION
       This program reads the British National Corpus (World Edition, December
       2000) and computes the frequency	counts for each	synset in WordNet.
       These frequency counts are used by the Lin, Resnik, and Jiang & Conrath
       measures	of semantic relatedness	to calculate the information content
       values of concepts. The output is generated in a	format as required by
       the WordNet::Similarity modules for computing semantic relatedness.

       A more detailed description of how information content is calculated
       can be found in rawtextFreq.pl. This program uses exactly the same
       techniques as described there.

OPTIONS
       --outfile=filename

	   The name of a file to which output should be	written

       --stopfile=filename

	   A file containing a list of stop listed words that will not be
	   considered in the frequency counts.	A sample file can be down-
	   loaded from
	   http://www.d.umn.edu/~tpederse/Group01/WordNet/words.txt

       --wnpath=path

	   Location of the WordNet data	files (e.g.,
	   /usr/local/WordNet-3.0/dict)

       --resnik

	   Use Resnik (1995) frequency counting

       --smooth=SCHEME

	   Smoothing should used on the	probabilities computed.	 SCHEME	can
	   only	be ADD1	at this	time

       --help

	   Show	a help message

       --version

	   Display version information

       PATH
