Summary:   DEAR COLLEAGUES,

AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER I POSTED A QUERY ABOUT REFERENCES TO THE PROBLEM OF DEBUGGING COMPUTATIONAL GRAMMARS (LINGUIST LIST VOLUME 10.1395).

FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE PEOPLE WHO RESPONDED TO MY QUERY: GERTJAN VAN NOORD, BILL MANN, BILL FISHER, CAROLYN P. ROSE, TED E. DUNNING, JEAN-LUC COCHARD, DETMAR MEURERS, DAVID MCDONALD, NORBERT BROEKER, SHULY WINTNER, MIRIAM BUTT, SASCHA BRAWER, JOHN

UNFORTUNATELY, I HAVE NOT YET BEEN ABLE TO ASSEMBLE A STRUCTURED AND COHERENT SUMMARY OF THE RESPONSES I RECEIVED. I HOPE TO DO IT VERY SOON. IN THE MEANWHILE I POST A PRELIMINARY LIST OF PROJECTS AND URLS RELEVANT FOR THE ISSUE OF GRAMMAR DEBUGGING (LIST EXTRACTED FROM THE RESPONSES RECEIVED AND THROUGH BROWSING ON INTERNET).
