In this paper we describe an architecture and functionality of main components of a workbench for an acquisition of do- main knowledge from large text corpora. The workbench supports an incremental process of corpus analysis starting from a rough automatic extraction and or- ganization of lexico-semantic regularities and ending with a computer supported analysis of extracted data and a semi- automatic refinement of obtained hypo- theses. For doing this the workbench em- ploys methods from computational lin- guistics, information retrieval and kno- wledge engineering. Although the work- bench is currently under implementation some of its components are already im- plemented and their performance is il- lustrated with samples from engineering for a medical domain.
