         Subject: recommendations for introductions to activities in
computational linguistics?

I would be grateful for recommendations of introductory articles or
book chapters, written for the intelligent but ignorant reader, on
what computational linguistics does, what it has achieved so far and
what practitioners think to be its long-term objectives. I need
something along these lines to give to postgrad students, to let them
know what they're missing as well as what they're encountering or
might encounter in their interactions with commonplace devices.
Ideally I'd like to find something comprehensive, i.e. that deals
with the full range of concerns, from theoretical to applied,
including commercial applications

Many thanks.
