Message 1: Linguistics and (theatrical) performance

From: Robert Pensalfini <rpensalfmidway.uchicago.edu>
Subject: Linguistics and (theatrical) performance

I was wondering if there are any linguistic works on language in
performance, in the sense of stage performance. I am not so much
interested in opera or musical theatre, but rather the spoken word or
the human voice. I am not looking for works which are written
specifically as guides to voice work for actors or teachers, but more
scholarly work. I am particularly interested in the relationship
between linguistic theory and theatre, and what the one can tell us
about the other (if anything).

Please reply directly to me, and I will post a summary if
there is sufficient response.

Thanks,

Message 2: Boston-area internships/volunteering opportunities for undergrads?

Subject: Boston-area internships/volunteering opportunities for undergrads?

Hello,

I'm a junior majoring in linguistics with a computer science minor at
Northeastern. As part of my studies, I am required to work or
volunteer in something related to my field and write a paper about it.
Topics I am interested in exploring involve the brain and language,
speech and text for the computer, and metaphor theory.

I will be applying at Lerner and Hauspie and Dragon Systems, as well
as inquiring about some lab work at the VA Hospital. However, I am
still on the search for more possibilities. One problem I'm having is
that most of what is out there is for recent graduates or masters/PhD
candidates, not much for people still in school.

If anyone has pointers to universities or businesses doing research in
neurolinguistics, voice recognition, metaphor theory, or general
linguistics who are looking for undergraduate students, feel free to
e-mail me. ASCII resume is available upon request.

Since I live south of Boston, I am interested in anything in the greater
Boston area.

Thank you for your time.

sincerely,
Tara Edwards

Subject: Search for References

Dear all,

I'm looking for the following two references:
Van Riemsijk (1990) and
Zwarts (1992)
both works deal with prepositions and their lexical / functional nature.
Please, reply to
