    May I recommend Bill Arms' new _Digital Libraries_ (MIT Press, 2000). It's
    an attempt to cover the state of the art and all of the issues raised by
    digital libraries in a reasonably non-technical manner. Even long-time
    computing humanists will I think find information of which they were not
    It's especially useful for colleagues who want a good overview. Much of
    the material has I suspect been drawn from the D-LIB electronic journal.
    The proof-reading leaves a lot to be desired, but hey, what can you expect
    from a computer scientist...

    The study of prosody is perhaps the area of speech research which has
    undergone the most noticeable development during the past ten to fifteen
    years. This book contains contributions by 15 internationally recognized
    experts (including M. Beckman, N. Campbell, C. Gussenhoven, J. Hirschberg,
    D. Hirst, D.R. Ladd, M. Ostendorf, J. Pierrehumbert, E. Selkirk, S.
    Shattuck-Hufnagel, and J. Terken) in different areas of prosody which
    provide readers with the most current and comprehensive picture of the
    major areas of research within the field. The contributions not only
    provide a survey of major developments in prosody during the past 1520
    years, but also present ongoing work as well as point to areas where
    future= research is needed. The chapters deal with a wide range of topics
    including  the representation of tones and intonation, evidence for and
    constraints on= =20 prosodic phrasing, prosodic boundary detection,
    articulatory dynamics of stress, timing in speech, and prosodic correlates
    of speaking style, as well as the perception of prosodic prominence.
    The book offers investigators in all areas of speech communication
    (phonetics, phonology, speech technology) with a comprehensive and coherent
    presentation of contemporary prosodic research.
