Progress is reported in the development of two generalized computer systems the first designed to implement automatic translation of languages, the second to support basic research in linguistics. The systems complement each other in that basic programs prepared for each are applicable to, and needed in, the other. The common system design contains three sections one for control, a second for language data processing, and a third for linguistic information processing. The first two sections are now operational. In the third, monolingual recognition programs for performing lexical and syntactic analysis and display were made operational. The programs are being used to verify English, German, Russian, and Chinese syntactic data. Substantial savings were achieved in machine time required for operation of the programs. Author
