Subject: New On-line Article - Linguistic Comparison/ Sign Language


To the members of Linguist List:

	I am happy to announce that a new article has been posted on the web at
http://www.SignWriting.org :

	"A Linguistic Comparison: Two Notation Systems for Signed Languages:
		Stokoe Notation & Sutton SignWriting"

		by
		Joe Martin
		Western Washington University
		mailto:Martinj4cc.wwu.edu

Linguists familiar with the well-known Stokoe method of notation for
ASL may be interested in this comparison with SignWriting, a system
which has been adapted to other signed languages as well.

Please note: we hope to provide an Acrobat ..pdf file of the article; an
announcement will be made.

Subject: New Mailing List - Computational Ling/ `cl-maori'


This message is to announce a new mailing list, `cl-maori', for the
discussion of issues relating to computational linguistics in the
M�ori language. Topics in computational linguistics include natural
language parsing and generation, automatic speech synthesis and
interpretation, statistical and corpus-based methods in linguistics,
and any other computational treatment of natural language. Relevant
issues for the list include:

 - reports of projects currently under way in M�ori computational
 linguistics; 
 - requests for information about projects in particular areas;
 - specific technical queries about any aspect of computational
 linguistics as it applies to M�ori.

Postings can appear in English or M�ori. Anyone can subscribe, and
the list is unmoderated.

To subscribe to the list, send a message to Majordomoalbatross.co.nz
with

 subscribe cl-maori

in the body of the message. (You can leave the subject line empty.)
You will receive in return a message giving further information about
how to interact with the list.

Looking forward to your contributions!
