I have a friend (really!) who needs a linguistics tools program. I am unsure
if this is the right terminology, but I know for certain that she does NOT
need a regular grammar checker.
She needs a tool that will automatically conjugate all possible forms of
a verb, list meanings for words, e.g., run for office, run a race, run
your pantyhose, etc.
Anyone know of such a beast? Software for the Mac would be preferred,
but I'll take suggestions for DOS/Windows also.
