Abstract : The report summarizes work directed toward comprehensive computer-based characterization of natural language text. A general-purpose thesaurus has been keypunched and proofread, and corrections are now being made; this work is preliminary to an effort to determine the structure of the thesaurus and, in general, to construct parametric models of thesauri. Preliminary approaches to the design of a statistical package for natural language analysis are also described; these approaches include a program to provide data formats for any type of language analysis. A User's Manual for the PL/I, S/360 list-structure and ring-structure VIA packages is also included. (Author)
