COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS LEONARDO MANRIQUE CASTAÑEDA A more accurate, if more cumbersome, expression for 'computational linguistics' would be: 'the handling of linguistic material with the aid of electronic computers'. In reference to both pure and applied linguistcs, electronic computers have been used all over the world. Since it is necessary to formulate the programs with great attention to detail, work with computers has led to the formalization of many of the assumptions underlying linguistic research. Sometimes problems were clarified through new Manfred Pinkal and Alexander Koller 13  Semantic research in computational linguistics 1 Introduction   366 2 Computational semantics in the logical framework   368 3 Statistical methods in computational semantics   377 4 Current developments   389 5 Conclusion   399 6 References   399 Abstract: Computational semantics is the branch of computational linguistics that is concerned with the development of methods for processing meaning information.

J A C O B MEY, University of Oslo, Oslo International Conference on Computational Linguistics The 1965 International Conference on C!omputational Lingïiistics was held in New York City under the auspices of the Association of Machine Translation and Computational Linguistics (AMTCL) May 19 through 21, 1965. Co-sponsoring were a number of national societies in the field of MT and mathematical linguistics. The number of participants ranged between 100 and 200 ; the plenary sessions of the conference drew an average of 100—150 participants, who listened to

507 Franz Guenthner Computational Linguistics: "A Personal View"1 1. If Computational Linguistics is the answer, what was the question? I would like to start with a few notes on the name of this (relatively new) discipline, with some examples the tasks this discipline has addressed in the recent past, which are not necessarily inherent in the name 'Computational Linguistics1. This paper has three parts: first, I would like to make a suggestion concerning a possible basic predicate of this discipline, and how this predicate could be specified so as to partitition

John McNaught Computational Lexicography and Computational Linguistics Abstract The relationship between Computational Linguistics is examined. Section one is a general discussion of publishers' machine readable dictionaries, which points out their failure to adapt to users' chang- ing needs. Section two discusses and evaluates attempts to process such dictionaries to obtain information useful for natural language processing, drawing a pessimistic conclusion. The third section investigates the current state of knowledge among Computational Linguists about machine

COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS IN THE 'SEVENTIES* JACOB ME 0. IN DEFENSE OF A TITLE Maybe I owe my readers an apology for the more or less PR-oriented, catchy title. One could ask: What's so special about a decade, anyway? And why should the '70s be singled out as a decade in which important things are supposed to happen in linguistics or any other field of science? There is also an inherent danger in a title like the above. When looking back on a decade, one may be able to formulate certain trends that were characteristic for that period. But looking forward is quite

SOME CONJECTURES IN COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS NICHOLAS V. FINDLER INTRODUCTION Advances in computer hardware and software have rendered possible the automation of a growing number of tasks which require various levels of intellectual performance. It is believed that certain activities related to dictionary writing could be greatly aided by the use of computers. Such are, for example, the generation of a smaller dictionary from a bigger one (e.g. Concise Oxford vs. Shorter Oxford), the compilation of students' or children's dictionaries, etc. Preliminary
