Subject: Software for Foreign Language Instruction

Dear Linguists,

The Computational Linguistics Laboratory (CLL) at Katanov State University
of Khakasia (KSU) is pleased to announce the release of computer systems
for foreign language instruction.

1. COMPARE allows the user to estimate time depth separating two
genetically related languages from their proto-language.

2. ETS (event tracking summarizer) is a system specially designed to
summarize long fiction so as to track events that happened to the personages.

3. PASS (Partially Automated Symmetric Summarization)

4. TITE (Translation in Teaching English)

PASS and TITE are network computer systems designed to facilitate
interaction between the teacher and student in the process of foreign
language teaching. Unlike local systems distributed on CDs, these systems
based on the advanced client-server architecture can be used to teach an
unlimited number of students simultaneously. They can be easily integrated
into existing foreign language curricula. The systems can be used in
teaching any language based on Latin or Cyrillic alphabets and can be
adjusted to different levels of language proficiency. The systems generate
statistical data about students' mistakes, thus providing the teacher with
important feedback about students' progress.

All these computer systems work on Windows platform.

Downloadable and online versions of these systems are available at
