 IJCL presents a wide range of views on the role of corpus
 linguistics in language research, lexicography and natural
 language processing (NLP).

 IJCL seeks to publish research that views language as a social
 phenomenon that can be investigated empirically on the basis of
 authentic spoken and written texts. Corpus linguistics specifies
 corpus design in respect to research interests, provides
 computational methods of extracting linguistic knowledge, and
 conceives tools to validate the accuracy of linguistic
 description. IJCL will discuss these aspects.

 IJCL aims to conciliate the expectations of language industry with
 the goals of academic research. Corpora are the basic resources in
 language engineering. It is the linguistic knowledge extracted from
 corpora that determines the perfomrance on any NLP application. IJCL
 is a forum to exchange and share expertise, visions as well as
 information on resources and tools.

 IJCL invites relevant contributions. For information on

To It May Concern:

I was recently notified from LINGUIST that my message was received on the 
mail-list; however, I have never posted any mail on the list. As a name 
indicated at the bottom of the original mail, the person who sent this is 
not me (Someone named Susan Frenck). I have no idea how the person used 
my account. Please notify the error to the subscribers and ask them to 
contact the right person about the issue.

Thank you.
