Thank you for your interest in the Linguist's Search Engine. Unfortunately this project is no longer active and the LSE is no longer running. (Actually, the project became inactive several years ago. It's a testament to Aaron Elkiss, the student who wrote the code, that it continued to run as long as it did virtually maintenance free. But all good things must come to an end...)
If you are interested in reading about the Linguist's Search Engine, see:
- Philip Resnik, Aaron Elkiss, Ellen Lau, and Heather Taylor, "The Web in Theoretical Linguistics Research: Two Case Studies Using the Linguist's Search Engine", 31st Meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society, February 2005, pp. 265-276. [paper, presentation]
If you are interested in trying out the code yourself, or in applying ideas from the Linguist's Search Engine in a new search engine of your own, see the "Source Code" link below under "Documentation" as well as the following:
If you wind up publishing something based on these ideas, please remember to cite us!

If you used the LSE and found it valuable, I'd be very happy to hear about it. Please send me mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
