Hello!

Does anyone know of a program specifically with fonts for the McIntosh? 
I especially need Greek fonts.

Thank you!

Message 2: Past tense

Fellow LINGUISTs

I wonder if anyone can point me at literature/anecdote/opinion about
the following:

SEE is a verb; TEE is a (golfing) verb. In my capacity as a naive
native speaker I seem to have far less of a problem analysing SEED as
a "badly made" past tense of SEE than I do analysing "TAW" as a "badly
made" past tense of TEE. In fact the latter strikes me as the sort of
excrutiating analogy only a desparate punster (or linguist) could come
up with.

Does TAW strike everyone as being much worse than SEED, or are there
some amongst you for whom SEED is just as "opaque", or even those for
whom SEED is more "opaque" than TAW?

Summary if the response warrants it....

Thanks

S.

Subject: Controlled Language Research on Spanish

Dear all,

With regard to controlled languages, much research has been 
on English (AECMA Simplified English, Caterpillar Technical
English, Diebold Controlled English, General Motors
CASL, Perkins PACE, etc). Aerospatiale has also worked
on the GIFAS "francais rationalise" that is the French
equivalent of AECMA SE).

Does anyone know of controlled language research done 
on Spanish? Please send bibliographical info, web site, 
e-mail, fax info to me directly at <jeffelda.fr>.

Thanks in advance,
