>Subject: Gunnel Kaellgren
>Gunnel Kaellgren, Professor of Computational Linguistics at the
>University of Stockholm, died February 11, 1999, at the age of 49.
>Gunnel was severely disabled by muscular dystrophy. Yet, she
>managed not only to be a productive scholar and make
>significant contributions to her field but also to be a central
>point in our department's life and to be the main source of
>inspiration and moral support for a large number of people, not
>only among her own students and departmental colleagues but
>also elsewhere.
>Over the last few years, Gunnel's major research engagement was
>the Swedish text corpus SUC, a joint project between our
>department and the Department of Linguistics at the University
>of Umeaa, which will soon be publicly available on CD-ROM.
>As the unique person she was, Gunnel deserves an obituary of
>another kind than this short notice. At this point, however, we
>feel that it is essential to inform her friends all over the
>world as quickly as possible.
