Message 1: ERIC Digest - Online Resource Guide

Subject: ERIC Digest - Online Resource Guide

The ERIC Clearinghouse on Languages and Linguistics is interested in making 
information about linguistics interesting and accessible to teachers, 
students, administrators, policy makers, and journalists. Two new 
publications that they are working on are an update of an ERIC Digest on 
"What is Linguistics?" and an online resource guide on Linguistics. The 
current (old) Digest on Linguistics is at . It could serve as the 
start to the new one. 

Each of ERIC/CLL's Resource Guides Online gives a brief overview of the 
topic with annotated links to publications, Web sites, listservs, and 
conferences. To get a clearer idea of what these guides look like, you can 
look at those published so far at . 
The most recent and most exhaustive are on Teaching Spanish to Spanish 
Speakers ( ) and Two-Way 
(Dual) Immersion ( ). The 
SNS guide includes articles and books not available on the Web; we don't 
generally list print-only resources unless information about them may be 
found on the Web.

Are there individuals (listserv members or their colleagues/students) who 
would be interested in writing (in the case of the Digest) or developing 
(the online resource guide) one or both of these? The person who did it 
would, of course, be the author.

Please contact Kathleen Marcos,, if you or someone you 
know is interested.

Dept. of Defense Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative

This Multidisciplinary Research Program supports university teams
whose research efforts intersect more than one traditional science and
engineering discipline. Topics include Automated Skills in Cognitive
Readiness (#14), Optimizing Cognitive Readiness Under Combat
Conditions (#8) and Human Activity Recognition From a Network of
Vision Sensors (#35), Statistical Machine Translation (#37). The
awards will be for a base period of three years, with two additional
years possible, and at a funding level commensurate with the fields
and breadth of research included in the details of each specific
proposal. For the FY2001 MURI competition, it is anticipated that
awards will range from half a million to about a million dollars per
year. More information on the 2001 competition (13 July 2000 deadline)
can be found at:
