Tagging Utility Program: putting etymological tags on a text

“The Dictionary of English Etymology for Analyzing Expressions” (hereinafter referred to as DEE ) contains the origin and borrowing process of approximately 20,000 English words and will be expected to expand to 25,000 (currently under compilation).

The DEE has been developed together with a tagging utility program. The tagging program allows users to tag each word of the target text at etymological labels(OE, ME, F, L, G, etc), by consulting the DEE database. One objective of the DEE is that it enables scholars to automatically analyze English expressions with the view that the etymology of each word in a text is one of the essential elements determining the behavior of the expression. Setting up etymology as one attribute of any word, researchers will be able to create the possibilities of developing semantic and rhetorical analysis.
