Since the old address no longer works, would anybody know
the new one?

Dear all,

I am going to develop a course on statistical models and methods
in computational linguistics using Eugene Charniak's book
"Statistical Language Learning". I would be very grateful for
advice concerning:

1. Supplementary literature, especially on the mathematical
 background, probability theory, etc., but also on applications.

2. Material for practical exercises, mini-projects, etc., both
 written material and software if available.

I'd be happy to post a summary to the Linguist list if there is
interest.

Best regards,

A local newspaper recently printed a letter to the editor that read, in
part, as follows:
"Tagalog is not a language but the second-most commonly spoken dialect
in the Philippines (next to Cebuano) out of more than 50 dialects. The
national language is Filipino, as required by the Philippine Congress in
1989."
Does anyone out there know what Filipino is, or where I might find some
information on it and the events in the Philippine Congress in 1989? I'd
like to use this topic as a starting-off point for a class discussion
about dialect vs. language, and prescriptivism, but I need to know more.

If you have some information, please reply to me directly. Thanks.
