Texas Linguist Forum 22, 1983

In the Spring of 1983 Lauri Karttunen taught a course on Computational Linguistics at the University of Texas. As a class project for the course Karttunen and his students created a Lisp implementation of Kimmo Koskenniemi's Two-Level Model (Two-level morphology: A general computational model for word-form recognition and production. Publication 11, University of Helsinki, 1983) that appeared later that year. Karttunen had an advanced copy of Koskenniemi's PASCAL implementation. In order to make sure that the credit for the idea got attributed to the right person, the Texas system was named KIMMO. The name stuck and the Texas KIMMO inspired many copies and variations including PC-KIMMO from SIL (Evan L. Antworth. PC-KIMMO: a two-level processor for morphological analysis. No. 16. Occasional publications in academic computing. Dallas: Summer Institute of Linguistics, 1990). The papers written for the course were published as a special issue of the Texas Linguistic Forum, Vol. 22, 1983.
