Abstract : Generalized programming systems are now in operational use which (1) maintain large stores of linguistic corpora or descriptive data, (2) perform automatic syntactic analysis, synthesis or translation, (3) prepare concordances or linguistic statistics, (4) perform automatic classification, (5) perform coordinate and associative information retrieval, and (6) process informant data. The analysis and classification capabilities are being combined in a self-organizing linguistic system. Descriptive studies of several languages, notably English, German, Russian, Chinese and Japanese, are in progress. Work is continuing in classification theory and algorithms, with applications in time-shared associative retrieval and automatic linguistic classification. (Author)
