Haskell and Scala NLP

Hello {Haskell,Scala} NLPers!

I just learned about the Scala NLP list.  Haskell programmer here
thinking of rewriting one of my minor components in Scala to simplify
installation within the GATE or U-Compare frameworks.

It occurred to me that folks on the Haskell list might be interested in
the Scala list and vice-versa since we're both about the functional
programming and both caught in a Pythonic or Java oriented landscape.

You can find out more about these projects at

1. http://projects.haskell.org/nlp/
2. http://www.scalanlp.org/

Unfortunately, Haskell NLP list is a bit quieter, still basically
trying to grow to critical mass.  Scala hackers, this could be a good
chance to wave hello and strike up a conversation!


PS. It's tempting to try and engineer a (friendly) rivalry between
    the two communities just to shake things up a little :-D
