Message 1: unix/c-based pos tagger

From: Charlotte Baltus <>
Subject: unix/c-based pos tagger

I am looking for a pos tagger (preferably similar to the Xerox tagger)
which can be called from a C program or from the unix command line. Anyone
know of such an implementation?

Message 2: Bibliography

Subject: Bibliography

In relation to the workshop

) Connectionist-Symbolic Integration:
) From Unified to Hybrid Approaches
) to be held at IJCAI'95
) Montreal, Canada
) August 19-20, 1995

I like to update a bibliography of work on connectionist-symbolic

About two years ago, I solicited input from this mailing list
and compiled a bibliography on the above topic (available in Neuroprose).
However, since then,
there has been a considerable amount of new developments that need
to be collected and categorized. Therefore, I want to update
(and re-compile) that bibliography.

Please send me any of the followings:
 -- New publications since Spring 1993
 -- Earlier publications that were inadvertently omitted in the
 the current bibliography
 -- Lists of your own publications in this area, preferably annotated
 (if they are not already in the bibliography).

My e-mail address is:

If you have hardcopies that you can send me, here is my address:
Dr. Ron Sun
Department of Computer Science
The University of Alabama
Tuscaloosa, AL 35487
(205) 348-6363

Your help is greatly appreciated.
However, the decision whether to include
a paper or not in the bibliography is solely the responsibility of the editor.



The previous bibliography (36 pages) on connectionist models with
symbolic processing is available in neuroprose.
To get a copy of the bibliography, use FTP as follows:
 unix) ftp (or
 Name: anonymous
 ftp) cd pub/neuroprose
 ftp) binary
 ftp) get
 ftp) quit
 unix) uncompress
 unix) lpr (or however you print postscript)

A clean-up version of the bibliography is published in the book:
 Ron Sun and Larry Bookman. (eds.)
 Computational Architectures Integrating Neural and Symbolic Processes.
 Kluwer Academic Publishers. 1994.

From: gen11 <>

I would be interested to know whether there are modern languages (excepting
pidgin and creole languages) that
(1) do show coordination, but do not show subordination on the syntactic level,
(2) do show subordination, but do not show coordination,
(3) that show neither coordination nor subordination.
Furthermore, I would be grateful for information about the relevant literature.
Please respond directly to .
I will summarize for the list.
Best wishes,
Bertram Pries.
