GEORGE W. SMITH
University of Massachusetts, Boston
k_Yffering an inquiry into the nature
of language from the perspective of
computing, Computers and Human Language
synthesizes recent research in linguistics,
computer science, and experimental
psychology as it explores the major computational approaches to language.
Among the topics considered are the computationally tractable,
symbolic basis of language, the mental lexicon as repository of knowledge,
the elegantly recursive structure of syntax, and the compositional nature
of meanings, together with the segmentation, focus, and hierarchical
construction of extended discourse. This text also explores such up-tothe-minute subjects as neurally-inspired computing, parsing and psychological plausibility, the controversial representation hypothesis, and the
ramifications of discourse "focus." With its clear, engaging style and
gradual, systematic exposition, Computersand Human Language makes
the fast-moving world of computational linguistics accessible to the
beginning student.

Current Research in Natural
Language Generation
edited by
Robert Dale, Chris Mellish, and Michael Zock
A Volume in the COGNITIVE SCIENCE Series
Natural language generation research
has been boosted in the past decade by
an increased engagement in the problems of constructing coherent and purposeful texts with computers. In the
course of this research many linguistic
formalisms have been adopted. This
book provides a snapshot of the state
of the art in natural language. It gathers
the leading U.S. and European NLG
researchers and sets them in the context
of five themes--text planning, linguistic realism, building realization, building descriptions, and connectionist
approaches.

THE A CL-MIT PRESS SERIES in
NATURAL
LANGUAGE
PROCESSING
Aravind Joshi, Karen Sparck Jones, Mark Y. Liberman,
Editors
The ACL Series will offer books of high quality in the field of
natural language processing, including human and machine
speech production and understanding. It will cover a wide range
of topics, both theoretical and applied, which should interest
researchers not only in computational linguistics, but also in
formal linguistics.
The Series will include specially commissioned volumes, research monographs, textbooks, and on occasion, collections of
high quality papers with clear unifying themes compiled under
the editorship of distinguished researchers.
The MIT Press publishes the ACL journal, Computational Linguistics. The Press also has a strong list in formal linguistics and
publishes the journal Linguistic Inquiry.
Submissionsfor the ACL Seriesshouldbe directed to one of the Editors, or to

PlAN RECOGNITION IN
NATURAL LANGUAGE
DIALOGUE
Sandra Carberry
In most current natural language
systems each query is treated as an
isolated request for information
regardless of its context in dialogue. Sandra Carberry addresses
the problem of creating computational stategies that can improve
user-computer communication by
assimilating ongoing dialogue and
reasoning on the acquired knowledge.

INTENTIONS IN
COMMUNICATION
edited by Philip R. Cohen, Jerry
Morgan, and Martha E. Pollack
The fourteen contributions in this

about the nature of intention as it is
understood in theories of communication, the crucial role of intention recognition in understanding
utterances, and the use of principles of rational interaction in
interpreting speech acts.

Guidelines for Submissions
Mar/uscripts for Computational Linguistics should be, submitted on letter-size paper (8.5 by
11 inches, or A4), double-spaced ,throughout, including footnotes and references. The paper
should begin with an informative abstract of approximately 150-250 words. Manuscripts must
be written in English. Contact the editor regarding the possibility of electronic submission.
Submissions m a y be made in any of the following categories:
Paper: This. category includes contributions that report significant new research results in computational linguistics or that provide critical reviews of the literature on a particular tQpic. The
length of a paper depends on its content, but we Suggest that manuscripts be .limited to forty
double-spaced pages.That is the equivalent of thirty journal pages. Each paper is fully refereed,
being read by at least two members of the editorial board and usually by an additional expert
in the particular subject areal The submission of an article to CL for refereeing means that the
author certifies, the manuscript is not copyrighted; nor has it been published or sUbmitted for
publication to another refereed journal. If any version of the paper has appeared, or will appear,
in a non-refereed pLlblication, the details of such publication must be made Known to the Editor at the time of submission. The final version of a paper tentatively accepted for publication
must be accompanied by a Copyright Transfer Agreement signed by all of the authors or, in the
case of a "work for hire," by the employer. This written transfer is necessary under the 1978
U.S. Copyright law.
: ,
Technical Correspondence: This category includes 'short articles reporting preliminaryresults
of some project in progress, or the results of other studies of interest to the readership. Technical correspondence should not generally exceed eight double-spaced pages. Each technical
correspondence is reviewed by at least two members of the editorial board before acceptance.
Letters to the Editor: This includes statements of opinion on issues relevant to the readership.
The Editor and the editorial board will evaluate the appropriateffess of these contributions for
inclusion.
Five copies of papers, technical ,correspondences, and letters should be sent to the Editor:

Founded in 1962, the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) is the primary scientific and
professional society for natural language processing research and applications. A European chapter was
established in 1982. Besides publishing Computational Linguistics, the ACL holds international meetings
(annually in North America, biennially in Europe) where the state-of-the-art in natural language
processing research and development is presented. It also sponsors a series of books on natural language
processing through The MIT Press.•Recently, special interest groups on the Mathematics of Language, the
Lexicon, Parsing, and Generation have been formed; others are likely to be added.
