Dear All,

Does anyone use S or R for statistical natural language processing (NLP)?

All I have found so far is  a package called EMU 
(http://www.shlrc.mq.edu.au/emu/emu-splus.shtml) which is a speech 
wave-form processing package.

What I'm looking for are routines to support text processing, text 
categorization, word sense disambiguation, text understanding etc.

In particular, I would like to find a routine in R to perform "maximum 
entropy" classification.

Classification", http://citeseer.nj.nec.com/nigam99using.html)
