a medical English LInking keywords finder for the PubMed Zipped Archive

What is med-ELIZA?

The med-ELIZA is a medical English LInking keywords finder for PubMed Zipped Archive, which searches keywords linking to each other in PubMed-medical-paper-abstracts in four phases. med-ELIZA analyzes the links between keywords occurring in the entire PubMed, in the same abstract, in the same sentence, and in the keyword in context (kwic).

What med-ELIZA does

  • ELIZA finds four types of linking keywords, neighboring (keyword in context, kwic), closely linking (in a sentence), loosely linking (in an abstract) keywords, and medical keywords (in the PubMed).
  • Thus, ELIZA assists you in writing medical English, and in researching a specific medical subject linking to the keyword.
  • ELIZA uses the PubMed database updated daily.


What med-ELIZA is based on

  • PubMed: med-ELIZA uses the PubMed data freely provided by the US National Library of Medicine (NLM).
  • WordNet: WordNet is “A Lexical Database for English” developed by Princeton University.
  • TreeTagger: “med-ELIZA” uses TreeTagger, which is a tool for annotating text with part-of-speech and lemma information developed by Helmut Schmid in the TC project at the Institute of Computational Linguistics of the University of Stuttgart when making the internal dictionary.
  • GENE95: “med-ELIZA” may show Japanese translation using an English-Japanese dictionary compiled by Kurumi.
