Title: Linguistic Informatics - State of the Art and the Future
Subtitle: The first international conference on Linguistic Informatics
Edited By: Yuji Kawaguchi
Susumu Zaima

Series Title: Usage-Based Linguistic Informatics 1

It is widely believed that linguistic theories and information technology
have considerably influenced foreign language education. However, the
collaboration of these three domains has not brought about new scientific
results. It it thus, our attempt to realize an integration of theoretical
and applied linguistics on the basis of computer sciences, and establish a
new synthetic field called "Linguistic Informatics."

The present volume constitutes the Proceedings of the First International
Conference on Linguistic Informatics held at Tokyo University of Foreign
Studies (TUFS) in December 2003.
