This volume consists of three articles. "'Language and Society' in the B.A. Scheme," by L. M. O'Toole, is a revised version of some proposals for incorporating a "Language and Society" course in the second year of the B.A. program at the Language Centre. Ten propositions are offered as a basis for discussion. "Some Soviet Research in Computational Linguistics," by P.T. Culhane, summarizes the results of a questionnaire sent to Russian organizations involved in computational linguistics. The table provides the following information: (1) town; (2) team size; (3) use of word count; (4) use of computer; (5) language(s); and (6) chief field of research. "Semantics via Machine Translation" by P.T. Culhane discusses the search for semantic relationships in Soviet linguistics in the context of machine translation, and in particular the theory of "slovosochetaniye" (or word-combination), and Zholkovsky and Mel'chuk's study for a semantic dictionary.
