Message 1: Transcription of German and Italian Conversations

Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 08:42:45 +0200
From: Stefan Rabanus <rabanusMailer.Uni-Marburg.DE>
Subject: Transcription of German and Italian Conversations

I would like to encourage all those who work in the field of
conversation analysis or do research of intonation in conversation to
use my transcriptions (45 minutes) of German and Italian conversations
at

http://archiv.ub.uni-marburg.de/sonst/2000/0003/

I used the GAT transcription system for the representation of turn
structure, stress, utterance-final pitch movements and some other
prosodic features. The intonation contour is represented in ToBI. I
think it necessary to make this type of empirical data which is always
hard to get available for anyone who is interested in it.

Message 3: You are a linguist when...

Subject: You are a linguist when...

It's the busy time of the year for everyone, and I thought people might
appreciate a *light* reading.
This is my creative writing; I hope you like it.

- --------
You know you are a linguist when you...

- plan your next vacation on a wh-island.
- have a c-commanding relationship with your siblings and an m-commanding
relationship with your cousins.
- dream about colorless green ideas that sleep furiously
- build a garden path in your backyard.
- name your dog "morphophonemics"
- start to question the superiority of English language
 - your coffee filter is replaced by a comp-trace filter
- your new Email password is "bahuvrihi"
- feel you are bound like an anaphor because you have to finish your school,
have a family, etc.
- fear your big PRO is always watching and your small pro is always
disappearing
- think this is funny.
