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: Software to be Used in Foreign Language Teaching
Submitter: Viatcheslav Yatsko
Description: Dear Linguists,

Computational Linguistics Laboratory (CLL) at Katanov State University of
Khakasia (KSU) is pleased to announce the release of computer systems
designed for the use in language teaching and foreign language teaching

1. COMPARE allows the user to determine the degree of correspondence
between basic dictionaries of two languages so as to estimate time depth
separating two genetically related languages.

2. ETS (event tracking summarizer) is a summarizer specially designed to
provide user with coherent summaries of fiction texts reflecting main
events that happened to the personages.

3. PASS (Partially Automated Symmetric Summarization)

4. TITE (Translation in Teaching English)

PASS and TITE are network computer systems designed to facilitate
interaction between the teacher and student in the process of foreign
language teaching. Unlike local systems distributed on CDs these systems
can be used to teach unlimited number of students simultaneously. They can
be easily integrated into existing foreign language curricula. The systems
can be used in teaching any language based on Latin or Cyrillic alphabets
and can be adjusted to different levels of language proficiency. The
systems generate statistical data about students' mistakes thus providing
the teacher with important feedback about students' progress.

All these computer systems work on Windows platform.

Detailed information about the systems is available at
