The report deals with advances in linguistic analysis and programming It concentrates on progress in the descriptive analysis of German and English, and on computer programs which have been developed. Linguistic work during the period was directed at expanding the dictionaries for both German and English. The number of lexical items coded was increased, as were the features associated with each item. The coding involved the linguists in some of the most complex problems of linguistic description, such as treatment of adverbs and extended forms for verbs. Since adverbs had not been adequately classified in any existing grammars of German or English, a new classificatory schema is being developed.
