Jane Austen Fiction Manuscripts: Home edit / delete

"The Jane Austen’s Fiction Manuscripts Digital Edition gathers together in the virtual space of the web some 1100 pages of fiction written in Jane Austen’s own hand."

"The Dictionary of the Scots Language (DSL) comprises electronic editions of the two major historical dictionaries of the Scots language: the 12-volume Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue (DOST) and the 10-volume Scottish National Dictionary (SND)."

As in the Porter stemming algorithm, which is well-described here. The Snowball stuff is also pretty interesting to look at.
