Many people have sent me requests for information on the Workshop that
was mentioned in the posting by Pete Schult in LINGUIST ,
Fri, 1 Oct 93 09:51:32 -0500. Thus, I am submitting a short general

 ====== Workshop Announcement ======

 Linguistic Society of America -- January 7, 1994 7-10 pm
 Organizer: Judith L. Klavans

Computational linguistics (CL) is a relatively new field within the
discipline of linguistics. The central questions in CL
can be viewed from several perspectives: How can a computational
approach be used to test linguistic theory? How can systems based on
linguistic knowledge be built to analyze or produce language?
In what ways might an implementation validate abstractions concerning
linguistic structure?
The purpose of this symposium is to present views on the role of
linguistics in computational linguistics, and on the role
of computational approaches in linguistics.
