Havel is pro-missile-shield? I guess I don’t know enough about Czech politics to know if this is unexpected or not. I’m sure Havel wants to do everything he can to integrate the Czech Republic into the West… but will playing to the U.S.’s interests help them into the EU?
I ran across a fascinating site today, Xerox Research Centre Europe: Multi Language Theory & Technology Demos: Czech Analyzer. It’s not a translation tool, but a linguistic analyzation tool–a sort of tool for do-it-yourselfers. Plug in a Czech phrase, and it will break it down by part of speech, gender, case, etc. This makes it easy for someone with only a dictionary in hand to puzzle out Czech text. Very clever, those guys at Xerox! [found via VADA‘s language resources. There’s more good Czech links there too.]
