Message 2: Another Bibliographic proposal

Date: Sun, 03 Sep 1995 08:15:09 Another Bibliographic proposal
From: Alexis Manaster Ramer <amrCS.Wayne.EDU>
Subject: Another Bibliographic proposal

There have been several very sound proposals for how to improve
our way of citing references recently (e.g., to use full first
names rather than just initials). I wonder if it would also
make sense to use Library of Congress transliterations of non-
Roman-alphabet names and titles, so as to make it easier to find
things. Of course, as linguists, we pride ourselves on our
own superior transcriptions, but in reality what we have is
a mess, since different authors or editors use different systems,
and unless one knows the language very well, it is sometimes
difficult to find what one is looking for in libraries, as I
have rcently discovered. It would make sense to use the system
which libraries use and then everything would be simple.

 NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING IN ASIA - MAILING LIST
 (NLPASIA-L)

 The purpose of NLPASIA-L is to provide an international scholarly forum
and central archive to facilitate and co-ordinate the documentation,
research, discussion, and dissemination of information on the computational
processing of languages in Asia. Main topics include:

 1. Natural language processing
 2. Computational linguistics
 3. Large scale corpora
 4. Speech processing
 5. Related fields

 The scope of discussion includes all aspects of computational processing
in and related to the languages of Asia including: linguistic theories;
linguistic data; databases; tools for language corpora and dictionaries;
systems for language and text processing and generation; algorithms; natural
language interfaces; multi-lingual systems; spelling checkers; parsing;
lexical and semantic analysis; pragmatics; discourse; knowledge
representation; machine translation; optical character recognition; font
design; speech recognition; speech synthesis; etc.
