This software (MontyLingua3) is a fork of the original MontyLingua project http://web.media.mit.edu/~hugo/montylingua/ since that project is not under active development. This copy of MontyLingua was licensed to me (Srinivasan R) under GNU GPL for non-commercial, non-proprietary usage and was downloaded from http://web.media.mit.edu/~hugo/montylingua. Since now I am having a GPLed copy of the software, I have all rights to copy, modify and redistribute it under GNU GPL. This copy of the software now is released purely under GNU GPL and anyone can use this for any purposes (commercial/non-commercial) as long as they follow the GNU General Public License as mentioned in http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt. A copy of the license can be found in COPYING. Please note that the original copy of MontyLingua downloadable from http://web.media.mit.edu/~hugo/montylingua/ has restrictions on commercial usage which requires a seperate license from the author. If you use this project for research, it would be nice to give credit to the original author (Hugo Liu) and also the MontyLingua3 project.
