Dear Wiki user,

The "OpenNLPProposal" page has been changed by JasonBaldridge.

  == Background ==
  
- OpenNLP was started in 2000 by Jason Baldridge and Gann Bierner while they were graduate
students in the Division of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. The initial codebase
for OpenNLP came out of the Grok natural language parsing toolkit which was used heavily in
both Baldridge's and Bierner's dissertations. The first paper that used Grok, and especially
the components that would become OpenNLP is [[http://comp.ling.utexas.edu/jbaldrid/papers/hockenmaier_etal_ESSLLI2000.pdf|Hockenmaier,
Bierner and Baldridge (2000)]] (later updated as the journal article [[http://comp.ling.utexas.edu/jbaldrid/papers/HockenmaierEtal2004.pdf|Hockenmaier,
Bierner, and Baldridge (2004)]].

  In 2000, Grok was split into two projects: OpenNLP tools for the core natural language processing
infrastructure and the Grok/OpenCCG library (openccg.sf.net) for parsing with categorial grammar.
Both projects have evolved independently since then and have mostly independent active developer
and user communities. OpenCCG is primarily used in the academic community, while OpenNLP has
considerable use in both academia and industry. As in indication of the academic impact of
OpenNLP, a search on Google scholar (done in March 2010) returned about 650 publications citing
the package. Some of these include the OpenNLP website and a few non-publications plus some
self-citations. Based on a scan of these results, we estimate that about 500 actual publications
have used OpenNLP in their work, and there are an addition 50 or so quasi-publications like
surveys and instruction manuals.
