Abstract : States that the described laboratory and the theoretical framework for language synthesis must each be broad enough to encompass a whole realm of behavior from the sensing and perception of stimuli that lead to language, the production of motor (including language) responses to languages, and the central cognitive processing that extracts meanings from the complicated structure of language. Outlines one view of such a laboratory, its program, its requirements and goals. Suggests that a language processing laboratory will materially reduce the time and effort required to achieve natural language processing on computers. Recommends that the personnel policy should be such as to attract a fair share of the most active researchers concerned with language, meaning and computers. (Author)
