Does anyone know of any literature addressing the issue of the
order of adjectives in English NP's? How about French?
Thank you.

Message 2: word sense disambiguation by people

From: Mark Sanderson <sandersodcs.glasgow.ac.uk>
Subject: word sense disambiguation by people
I am doing some research into word sense disambiguation applied to
information retrieval. Recently I was reading a paper that said,
"a number of researchers in text processing have observed that people can
consistently determine the sense of a word simply by examining the half
dozen or so words just before and after the word in focus."
But then the paper doesn't seem to directly reference any papers mentioning
this. I would really like to track down these papers, does anyone have a
reference for them ?

Message 4: LRE programme of EEC

Date: 23 Oct 91 11:46:27 EDT
From: "CHRISTOPHER A. BREWSTER" <BREWSTERGRPATVX1.BITNET>
Subject: LRE programme of EEC
This addressed to LINGUIST members in the EEC.
We would like to hear about intended proposals to the DG XIII Linguistic
Research and Engineering programme which need a partner for Modern Greek.
The Wire Communications Laboratory has ten years experience in speech
processing (recognition and synthesis) and has participated in ESPRIT 860
"Linguistic Analysis of European Languages" and ESPRIT 2104 "POLYGLOT" -
the latter concerned with multilingual synthesis and speech recognition.
We can offer expertise in automated labelling (text-tagging), synthesis,
speech recognition, syntactic analysis, morphological analysis, phoneme-to-
grapheme systems, grapheme-to-phoneme systems.
We possess extensive corpora of Modern Greek, and full-for and lemmatic
dictionaries for Modern Greek.
We are interested in partipating any cooperative venture, but particularly
in the context of applications to the LRE programme.
