Subject: Last Chance for Free Software

As of next week all of Ergo Linguistics Tools including the newest "Roswell
Teaches English" will change from free software to paid software. Those
of you would like to work with these tools for free should download them
before October 15th. You can get to the site at http://www.ergo-ling.com.

These software products will be kept on the ergo server but will be
distributed and advertised more widely and will no longer be offered for
free. We are making this last time free offer for researchers and students
of NLP and theoretical linguistics.

All programs are written in C++ have programmer SDK's available upon
request are Windows 95/98/NT compatible.

The programs include:

MemoMaster -- An add on for speech recognition products that significantly
increases the navigation and control abilities of those products as well as
adding more sophisticated messaging and reminders and notes.

BracketDoctor -- A program for linguists which provides tree diagrams and
labelled bracketings for sentences in the Penn Treebank II style. Great
for students who would like to include computer generated trees in their
papers using this standardized framework.

ChatterBox -- A product that provides sophisticated question and answer
abilities that are easily added to animations (e.g Microsoft Agents) and
are useful for educational and entertainment programs.

Roswell Teaches English -- A stand alone product to help students of
English as a Second Language practice their English using natural language
questions and responses. Includes a manual and textbook.
