Professor Roberts said, “It was good presenting ColloCaid at this event. We gave a talk titled ‘Developing ColloCaid – lessons learnt in developing a text-editing tool, and visualising words, to help writers with collocations’. Our presentation was divided into four parts. We first gave background information about the project and the data, second presented how we had designed and developed ColloCaid, third discussed some lessons learnt, and finally we gave a demonstration of the latest version”.

Peter Butcher said “It was good presenting at this symposium and meeting other researchers in the area of language technologies”.
