Can I perform Terminology Extraction in Mathematica? More specifically, can I extract candidate terms from a corpus of text documents?

The corpus is made up of different text types and formats. Mainly semi-structured data with usually only NP expressions (and sometimes just proper nouns). Also, some unstructured data. Can I preprocess this dataset in Mathematica so that I can perform the required information extraction?

Provide more details may be helpful. –  mm.Jang May 31 '13 at 13:53
Most likely since Mathematica is Turing complete, more useful answers might follow if you give a small example of the problem you want to solve and perhaps where you are getting stuck. –  image_doctor May 31 '13 at 15:12
We are not experts in computational linguistics, so it would be very helpful if you could be explicit about the meaning of "Terminology Extraction" and "NP expressions". But, as image_doctor says, you have not given enough description of your actual problem to warrant any other answer than "yes, you can do it". More details are certainly needed. –  Oleksandr R.
