              LOCAL AND GLOBAL PHENOMENA IN DISCOURSE:
                      THE `DANDELION' APPROACH
              ----------------------------------------
                       15th-16th December 1995

              ---------------------------------------
 
The ESPRIT Basic Research Action DANDELION (Discourse Functions and
Discourse Representations: An Empirically and Linguistically Motivated
Interdisciplinarily-Oriented Approach to Natural Language Texts) will
be holding its final project workshop and review to mark the end of
the project.
 
DANDELION has developed theories of a number of phenomena in discourse
including coherence relations, information structuring, thematic
development, causal and contrastive connectives, aspect and text
structure, and discourse functions of NP types.  In parallel, it has
produced and enhanced computational resources for the investigation
and development of discourse theories.
