Subject: English Parser

Logos Corporation has a pretty good English semantico-syntactic parser (tagger
as a minimum) incorporated in a machine translation product.

We are going to package this as an independent UNIX-based software package for
the Institut fuer Deutsche Sprache in Mannheim,Germany, and quite possibily a
copy of this might be made available to other researchers. This should be
 readysometime in the next monthor two, as I understand it.

The parser dictionary has c. 40,000 entries.

If interested, please send me a description of intended use,input format
considerations, etc.and I'll pass it by the powers that be.

If your usage would include parser (tagger) evaluation, error rates,
error feedback, etc., so much the better.

Announcement -- The American Association for the Advancement of Science
will meet in Baltimore, Md. February 8 - 13, 1996. Section Z - Linguistics
and the Language Sciences -- will hold its annual business meeting for all
Z affiliates and friends on Friday, Feb 9, 7:30 - 10:30 pm. (This is
an early announcement so you can write it on your calendars.) There will
be a number of Symposia sessions sponsored by our Section which will be
announced on the LINGUIST NET as soon as information is available.

We once again urge all linguists to join the AAAS -- the major science
'umbrella' organization in the U.S. It took us many years to be recognized
as a legitimate science (which of course we have been) and it is important
that the number of affiliates for Section Z be increased dramatically.

An application form follows.
