  8. 8. <ul><li>The ICECUP research platform uses an intuitive grammatical query representation called Fuzzy Tree Fragments (FTFs) to search parsed corpora. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Appart from creating these corpora and tools useful to the corpus linguistics research, they make research into English language. </li></ul><ul><li>Recent projects include research on the English Noun Phrase, Subordination in Spoken and Written English, and the English Verb Phrase. </li></ul>
