This issue of Logo Update On Line features a paper by Savalai Vaikakul of the Future of Learning Group at the MIT Media Lab.In "Teaching a Turtle How to Spell" she describes a project in which children used programming to understand and construct the rules of spelling in English and other languages, including ones that they themselves made up.
Logo has long been used to explore natural language, and in "Language and Logo" we give a very brief explanation of how this may be done, along with pointers to additonal resources.
New Logo software releases include updates to MicroWorlds and MicroWorlds Pro, and a number of new version of public domain and research versions of Logo.
