Linguistic Technology Going 2.0.

Linguistic Web envisions high resolution linguistic intelligence tools freely accessible to the developers of natural language applications, opening possibility for  easy collaboration between providers of linguistic analysis software and developers of natural language applications.

Companies like Powerset and Cognition Technologies already have solid, scientifically-based software for linguistic analysis, a fruit of long years of research.  Of course, application developers do not presently have free access to anything like these proprietary solutions.  Nevertheless, the very existence such advanced systems proves that it could be done.
