 Apple Developers Association have a lot of information on System 7.1
 and World Script etc.

Actually, APDA has so little info on WorldScript or foreign language
modules for System 7.1. I called them several times to ask about Japanese
and other Asian language scripts, but none of the reps that I talked
with was helpful. One did say that KanjiTalk (Japanese operating
system for the Mac) is sold only through KanjiTalk dealers in the U.S.
 There is a company, SystemSoft, which is an exclusive distributor for
Japanese (and some other foreign Mac) operating systems in the U.S.
They also carry TrueType and PostScript Type 1 Japanese fonts. (Sorry,
I didn't ask about Korean.) They can be reached at 800-882-8856, if you
are in the U.S. (or e-mail KANJI.SALESAppleLink.Apple.com).
 Incidentally, the Mac Developer CDs available through APDA sometimes
contain foreign operating systems (with some fonts included), although
APDA reps don't volunteer to say this.
 I don't think any of the Asian (and perhaps no non-American) language
modules are for sale yet outside the countries where the languages are
used. If you are in an urgent need for a Korean OS (not just a font),
contact Ecological Linguistics (Box 15156, Washington, D.C. 20003; 202-546-
5862). They carry some foreign versions of System 6.0.7, including Chinese,
Japanese, Korean, Hebrew, and Arabic. If you only want foreign-language
fonts, both this company and Linguist's Software (POBox 580, Edmonds,
WA, USA 98020-0580; 206-775-1130) carry many fonts. (Note System 6 doesn't
run on some newer Macs. Also, KanjiTalk 7, which is compatible with
WorldScript II under System 7.1 won't be released in the U.S. until
February, at the earliest. I guess this is also the case with other
Asian language modules. Some foreign versions of System 7.0.1 can be
FTPed from ftp.apple.com.)

 Turkish Natural Language Processing Discussion Group

 The purpose of this list is to form a discussion group on natural
 language processing (nlp) studies on the Turkish language. We welcome
 all submissions that are on, or related to, (a) computer-based
 analysis or synthesis of turkish, (b) application of linguistic
 theories to the language, (c) linguistic tools and their applicability,
 (d) implications/adaptation of current computational linguistic
 models to turkish (e) announcements of relevant events (seminar, colloquia,
 etc.) (f) announcements of software tools and databases such as
 parsers, morpholgical analyzers, MRD's and lexicons, Turkish text
 corpus, etc.

 The list is not moderated at this time.
 Contributions may be in Turkish, English or
 any other language that may find an audience in the group.
