Message 1: Language comprehension tests

Subject: Language comprehension tests

I am looking for a standardized test of adult language comprehension
ability for use in a study of individual differences in parsing and
working memory capacity. I do not want general 'verbal ability'
scales (which often include digit span, vocabulary knowledge, etc.),
but rather a test of sentence/discourse comprehension. This could be
a subscale of a larger language test. It must be standardized,
preferably with published correlations with other scales.

Please reply to smythscar.utoronto.ca

Message 2: Interactive software for instructional use

Subject: Interactive software for instructional use

Does anyone have, or know of, interactive software that has been
developed to facilitate the teaching of grammatical analysis in
undergraduate classes? We are interested in anything which is
relevant to the instruction of syntax, phonology, morphology,
semantics, or any other analytic component of language.

Thanks in advance,
