 CALL FOR PAPERS
 The journal of Computers and the Humanities
 Special Issue
 on
 Common Methologies in Computational Linguistics and Humanities Computing

 edited by

 Nancy M. Ide and Donald E. Walker

Recently, panels and sessions at COLING, and conferences of the Association for
Computational Linguistics, the Association for Computers and the Humanities,
and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing have addressed the
increasing merging of methodologies in the fields of computational linguistics
and humanities computing.

On the one hand, computational linguists are devoting considerable attention to
statistical and other quantitative measures traditionally used in humanities
computing. Also, work with large text corpora, long the central activity in
humanities computing, is becoming an important area for computational
linguistics. Computational linguists are now beginning to consider texts, and
even literary texts, as an object of study and a rich source of information
about the phenomena of language and discourse.

On the other hand, humanists are turning to methods for morphological,
syntactic, and semantic analysis developed by computational linguists to
enhance their strategies for literary and linguistic studies.

A special issue of Computers and the Humanities will be devoted to papers that
describe work which falls at the intersection of the fields of computational
linguistics and humanities computing, either in methodology or use of materials.
Papers dealing with computational lexicology and lexicography, corpora and
corpus linguistics, statistical models and methods for language and text
analysis, and syntactic, semantic, and content analytic methods are invited.

All papers should be submitted by May 1, 1991. The special issue is expected to
appear in late spring, 1992.
