in reply to NLP - natural language regex-collections?

I looked at all Lingua module docs to find the ones that can be useful in the context of this thread: parsing or generating (english) language constructs.

I have excluded all modules for other languages than english, french, or german.

One module stands out from the others: Lingua::LinkParser is a wrapper for the LINK parser (downloadable here code included), which is a parser written in C, and has an API, which is used by the perl module. I haven't yet used the wrapper but did install the parser itself, and compiled it without problem on win2k with vc6. It has a shell which is easy to get started, and parsing seems very advanced (first impression).

This is a work in progress; I'll continue adding to it, as these and other modules are examined. (Regexp::, Parser::, etc. will follow)
