Dear fellow attendees of ACH/ALLC 99:

I would be glad to know of any photographic images in electronic form taken
of the conference and in particular of the banquet that are not already on
the conference web site. Please reply privately.

Subject: Re: Announcement of Computational Linguistics Textbook

I am wondering if this contains a review of current literature and extant
software, and if you couldn't give us a brief description of the review
on this list so that we might fit the book into its proper context and
make a decision as to whether or not to purchase.
