Subject: comparing syntax trees



Does anybody know of any methods for matching syntax trees, with an 
appropriate scoring sytem for evaluation and comparison? metrics for 
distance functions?

I want to compare translated sentences generated by 2 different systems, 
and evaluate their coloseness/measure their distance - on a word, 
grammatical clause, and structural level.

Any info greatly appreciated. Please ask if I'm being too vague!

Subject: speech pathology assessment tools for Hispanic population


I am a Speech-Language Pathologist, working on an adult inpatient
brain injury rehabilitation unit. Over the past several years the
number of Spanish-speaking patients we treat has increased
tremendously. I am looking for assessment tools for this population
for evaluation of basic language and of linguistic-cognitive skills
(Spanish with English translations). Any information you have will be
greatly appreciated. I have found a lot of resources for children,
but none for the adult Hispanic brain injury population. 

Thank you for your help.
