					   in communication with one another.
					   In the past, it took me weeks, if
					   not months, to track down
					   language-specific articles, theses,
					   dissertation, handouts, etc and
					   the authors via letter, fax, phone,
					   etc.  Now it
					   can be done in a few minutes.

					   David, you should contact Christine
					   Kamprath at Caterpillar Inc (one
					   of my former colleagues when I
					   worked on the translation system
					   there).  Her speciality in
					   linguistics before getting into
					   computational linguistics was in
					   fact Rhaeto-Romance dialects
					   of Switzerland.  To my knowledge,
					   she continues to edit journal
					   articles that deal with RR.
					   Her e-mail is kamprck at cat.com  &
					   ckkz8d1 at cat.com

					   Just tell her that Jeff sent you
					   along since you had mentioned
					   that you were interested in RR
