[Corrected Posting]
Once again, we are posting notices of new books and/or software
which are available for discussion. If you would like to lead
a discussion on one of the available works, you should contact
 Daniel Seely at: ENG_SEELYemunix.emich.edu
We expect that commentary will be informal and interactive,
and we hope that the author(s) of the works will join in.

 ------------------------------

Arboreal is a Mac font, but it's available for discussion:

New font for syntax trees -- announcement

Cascadilla Press is pleased to introduce Arboreal, the tree-building
font for the Macintosh. Arboreal is a font which works with any
Macintosh application and provides you with the pieces you need to
create syntactic trees quickly and easily. PostScript and TrueType
formats are both included. The price is $20.00 ($24.00 outside the
US including air mail shipping). For more information write to
