Subject: Japanese Speech Corpora

I am interested in knowing about available acoustic corpora of Japanese
speech. I am already aware of the holdings of the LDC
( http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/Catalog/ ) and OGI
( http://cslu.cse.ogi.edu/corpora.htm ). If there is interest I will post a
summary to the list.

Message 2: The verb "dismiss"

Subject: The verb "dismiss"

Dear Listmembers,

I have a question about the verb "dismiss." Can it
have a null object as in the following sentence?

"Because of the storm, the school should dismiss
early."

My intuition as a native speaker of English is that
the sentence is not ungrammatical, just a bit awkward.

Thanks,

Kevin Lemoine, Ph.D.

Dear list members.

I' am looking for literature about dubbing in Latinamerica - and would be
thankful for any information.

Please, write to my e-mail address: s.hofmannem.uni-frankfurt and not to
the list.
