Qs: Intrinsic Vowel Duration, NLP Course Survey

Editor for this issue: Karen Milligan <>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Bilingual acquisition of vowel duration and VOT

Dear all,

can you please direct me towards current and past studies on the
acquisition of intrinsic vowel duration (lax vs tense), extrinsic
vowel duration (voicing conditioned), and VOT by late and early

I have been able to locate some papers on IVD and VOT 
but none on EVD acquisition.

I will post a summary.

Message 2: ACL NLP Course Survey

From: Robert Dale <>
Subject: ACL NLP Course Survey

If you currently teach a university or college course that covers
material in natural language processing, computational linguistics or
language technology, we'd be very pleased if you would contribute to
the new Association for Computational Linguistics Natural Language
Processing Course Survey. It will take between 10 and 20 minutes of
your time to fill in the web-based questionnaire, and your data will
contribute to a valuable resource for the community, available via the
web. Just visit

We are deliberately drawing the boundaries here as loosely as
possible: if your course is about something else (for example,
information retrieval, artificial intelligence, or formal methods in
linguistics) but you spend more than one lecture talking about NLP,
then we'd like to have your course included.

If you have any questions about the ACL NLP Survey, or if you'd like
to contribute information but are not able to access the Web
interface, feel free to email us at

The NLP Course Survey is supported by the ACL, with development work
by Mary Taffet (Syracuse University) and co-ordination by Robert Dale
(Macquarie University).
