Linguistic Data
Mathematica has not only convenient built-in multilingual dictionaries, but also built-in information on word meaning, structure and usage, as well as the relationship between words. Together with Mathematica's tightly integrated string manipulation functions, visualization, and data import and export, this provides a uniquely powerful platform for natural language computing.
