Abstract : The work plan of a long-range series of experiments in automatic linguistic classification is described, together with discussion of a first experiment. The latter is concerned with category identification. In particular, the data resulting from automatic syntactic analysis of English were used to identify syntactical categories which have similar membership. The series of experiments will accordingly combine the use of automatic linguistic analysis and automatic classification techniques. Automatic syntactic analysis, and in later experiments semantic analysis, will be performed within the Linguistics Research System. Automatic classification will be carried out within the Automatic Classification System. Both of these computer systems have been developed by the Linguistics Research Center. A programming interrface is being constructed between the two systems so that their combined capabilities can be used for automatic linguistic classification and partial self-organization. (Author)
