    My dissertation involves the statistical induction of phrase-structure
    grammars. I had planned to use C++ for the implementation. However,
    several professors at my university are concerned about using C++.
    One reccommended PROLOG, even though I plan to use existing parsers.
    Another warned me that using C++ would be a nightmare and few people
    in my computer science depatment use it, mot preferring C instead.
    ANy comments researchers in statistical language learning have for me
    would be greatly appreciated.
