    Dear All,

    as some of you know, I am currently working on a project (EMILLE) which aims to
    build a number of corpora covering the languages of South Asia. The EMILLE
    project team is Paul Baker, Andrew Hardie and Tony McEnery (Lancaster) and
    Hamish Cunningham and Rob Gaizauskas (Sheffield). I thought some of you may be
    interested to know that the EMILLE team has recently entered into a
    collaboration with the Central Institute of Indian Languages, in Mysore, India,
    which will allow us to expand the number of languages covered by the EMILLE
    corpora from seven (Bangla, Gujarati, Hindi, Panjabi, Singhalese, Tamil and
    Urdu) to 14 (Assamese, Bangla, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam,
    Marathi, Oriya, Panjabi, Singhalese, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu). The CIIL/EMILLE
    corpus should be ready for early 2004.

    Now for the Easter present - we have updated the EMILLE website to include a
    number of project reports and the proceedings of a workshop held in Mumbai
    (Bombay) earlier this year. The workshop brought together UK and South Asian
    researchers with an interest in corpus linguistics. The workshop was jointly
    supported by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the
    National Centre for Software Technology, Mumbai. The papers and reports can be
    found at:

    Happy reading! Best,
