Message 1: Dyslexia and Foreign Language teaching

Subject: Dyslexia and Foreign Language teaching

Hi,
I am a second year undergraduate in the department of Education at the
University of Wales, Aberystwyth. I am currently looking for potential
references for my dissertation, which will hopefully be on the subject of
Dyslexia as a link with Foreign Language learning and teaching. 

I am aware that most research has been done into Dyslexia and the mother
tongue; however I would be grateful to know if anyone knows of any useful
references on this subject.

Thankyou very much,

Joan Gills

Subject: looking for English corpus with discourse annotations

Hi,

I'm looking for an annotated corpus of English narrative text that tracks
the discourse focus, sentence by sentence. Any leads would be gratefully
appreciated. Please send responses to ronan.reillyucd.ie
