Dear Colleagues,

At least once in a two weeks people ask me by e-mail about
the addresses of people listed below.

I think it'r worth informing the readership about them.

Vladimir RYKOV

Here is a list of people working in the field of
Automatic Term Extraction from the text.

I am grateful to them for their replies and I hope this list will
be used and extended.

Message 2: AN-LANG: Austronesian languages & linguistics list

Date: Thu, 20 Apr 1995 09:45:47 AN-LANG: Austronesian languages & linguistics list
From: Malcolm Ross <Malcolm.Rossanu.edu.au>
Subject: AN-LANG: Austronesian languages & linguistics list


We are happy to announce the establishment of AN-LANG, the Austronesian
Languages and Linguistics e-mail list.

This list was mooted at the Seventh International Conference on
Austronesian Linguistics in Leiden in August 1994. It was agreed there that
an Association for the Study of Austronesian Languages (ASAL) should be
established. An organising committee was put together to further this aim
and, in particular, to look into ways and means of setting up an e-mail
list and a newsletter to serve the proposed Association and other
interested linguists. The members of the committee are Andrew Pawley
(coordinator, ANU, Canberra), Byron Bender (U Hawai'i), Margaret Florey (La
Trobe U, Melbourne), Franc,oise Ozanne-Rivierre (CRNS, Paris),
Hein Steinhauer (Leiden U) and John Wolff (Cornell U).

The first step is the establishment of this list, the subject matter of
which is Austronesian languages and linguistics.

Jeff Marck (jeff.marckanu.edu.au) is coordinating maintenance.

Malcolm Ross (malcolm.rossanu.edu.au) is coordinating policy. For the
moment the list will not be moderated, i.e. all messages sent to the list
will go to all people currently subscribed to AN-LANG.

To subscribe to the list, send a message to listprocanu.edu.au with text
as follows:

Message 3: Ethnologue 12th Edition now on-line

Date: Thu, 20 Apr 1995 11:20:34 Ethnologue 12th Edition now on-line
From: Evan L. Antworth <Evan.Antworthsil.org>
Subject: Ethnologue 12th Edition now on-line


The Ethnologue is a catalog of the world's languages. Edited by
Barbara F. Grimes, the twelfth edition was published in 1992 by SIL
(Summer Institute of Linguistics).

The database on which the 12th edition was based is now available
on-line from several sources and in various formats.

The best way to access the Ethnologue is via World Wide Web. Use this
URL for the installation of the Ethnologue available from SIL in
Dallas:

 http://www.sil.org/ethnologue/ethnologue.html

The database itself is actually accessed using a Gopher interface
which supports Boolean searching. The Gopher URL is:

 gopher://sil.org/11/gopher_root/ethnologue/

and the Gopher link information is:

 Type=1
 Name=Ethnologue, 12th Edition, 1992 (catalog of languages)
 Path=1gopher_root:[ethnologue]
 Host=gopher.sil.org
 Port=70

Another installation of the Ethnologue on Web can be found at this URL:

Thanks to Ross Paterson for this excellent presentation.
