Message 2: NLP and Tutorial Agents

Subject: NLP and Tutorial Agents

To The Readers,

I am currently in the process of doing research for several grants dealing
with intelligent tutoring systems. Tutorial Agent technology is well known
among both theoretical linguists and computational linguists as technology
that requires a background in one or more of the following areas: syntax,
semantics, pragmatics and more. It is a good area of research and a good
area for jobs for both theoretical and computational linguists. I have a
long list of sources that I have found related to intelligent tutoring
systems which can be obtained by any interested parties via personal
correspondence with me. I was wondering if anyone could point me towards
any current literature on this subject? Any help is appreciated.

Message 3: Phonological and grammatical words

Subject: Phonological and grammatical words

We are studying languages for which it is appropriate to establish separate
units of phonological word and grammatical word. These sometimes coincide
but do not always do so. Can you direct us to reliable descriptions of
languages which recognise these two types of word, with explicit criteria?

Thanks in advance
