The shift from Computational Linguistics to Language Engineering is indicative of new trends in NLP. This paper reviews two NLP engineering problems: reuse and integration, while relating these concerns to the larger context of applied NLP. It presents a software architecture which is geared to support the development of a va- riety of large-scale NLP applications: In- formation Retrieval, Corpus Processing, Multilingual MT, and integration of Speech Components.
