Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

FYI: New List for Phonologists, Free Software/NLP


Author: Alain Thiriault

FYI Body: Dear All


I am puting together a list of phonologists interested in the
Declarative Phonology (DP) framework. This list would be available on the
SIGPHON web page and, the editors permiting, on the links page of LINGUIST.
The idea behind this list is to permit contacts and exchanges between
phonologists interested in this framework.

If you would be interested, or know anyone who would, of having
your name in such a list please contact me at :
theriaal@magellan.umontreal.ca.

This list would mainly be a list of addresses available to those
interested in DP. It could also be used as some kind of newsletter for
general informations. Such a newsletter would be moderated in order to
lower the risks of spaming.

Thanks to you all

As of next week all of Ergo Linguistics Tools including the newest "Roswell
Teaches
English" will change from free software to paid software. Those of you
would like to
work with these tools for free should download them before October 15th.
You can
get to the site at http://www.ergo-ling.com.

These software products will be kept on the ergo server but will be
distributed and
advertised more widely and will no longer be offered for free. We are
making this
last time free offer for researchers and students of NLP and theoretical
linguistics.

All programs are written in C++ have programmer SDK's available upon reques
are Windows 95/98/NT compatible.


The programs include:

MemoMaster -- An add on for speech recognition products that significantly
increases
the navigation and control abilities of those products as well as adding more
sophisticated messaging and reminders and notes.

BracketDoctor -- A program for linguists which provides tree diagrams and
labelled
bracketings for sentences in the Penn Treebank II style. Great for
students who
would like to include computer generated trees in their papers using this
standardized
framework.

ChatterBox -- A product that provides sophisticated question and answer
abilities
that are easily added to animations (e.g Microsoft Agents) and are useful for
educational and entertainment programs.

Roswell Teaches English -- A stand alone product to help students of English
as a Second Language practice their English using natural language questions
and responses. Includes a manual and textbook.
