Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: INTEX:A Software Platform for a Large-Coverage Description of Languages
Submitter: Max Silberztein
Description: Dear Colleagues,

Maurice Gross's death is a terrible loss for the linguistic community and especially for the INTEX project, which started in 1993 with the goal of offering a software platform for a large-coverage description of languages based on the theory of Z. Harris's Transformational Grammars and the methodology developed by M. Gross and his team.

We wish to offer the academic world an opportunity to use INTEX and its English module (DELA and Finite-State local grammars). The English module does not yet contain disambiguation rules or lexicon-grammars; we hope tha you will help us add linguistic data!

Version 4.24 (coming soon) will offer the French module as well as a few new functionalities and improvements.
