Thanks, but can you perhaps be a bit more specific? I have several
non-empty files in this data directory, among those also file names
starting with "word." eg. "word.corpus.cnt" and "word.huf" etc. They
should be accessible. There are words in the corpus.

I am using CWB version 3.0. I am told that cwb-align worked with the
same settings and switches with CWB 2.2. on a different Linux. Maybe I
should switch to an earlier version of CWB?



This error message is triggered if cwb-align can't load the file that
contains the word attribute of corpus 1, or if there were 0 words in the
corpus. Can you check the contents of your data directory for the corpus
