cue.language: a small Java library for natural language text tasks
Over the 18 months or so that my Wordle toy has been in heavy use, I've continually improved the rudimentary utilities I use to detect language, count words, and such. Thanks to IBM's relatively sane policies about open source software, I'm able to share that small body of code (and resources) with the world. So, if you want to auto-detect language, remove stop words in a bunch of languages, or count n-grams (with Java), then maybe this will be useful to you. Otherwise, it's hard to imagine anything less useful. I mean that literally. I mean, like, an ice tray that's too deep to fit in your freezer? Some expired photo-processing chemicals? Ague?

Wow, awesome. And congrats on Wordle, there were a lot of kind of lame tagclouds and word-visualization tools before it, but it upped the ante on stuff actually being nice to look at.

Thank you for your comments. Please let me know (via email, if you like) whether you actually have a use for the stuff, and how it could be improved. Cheers!
