Message 1: Inuit relative clause marker

Subject: Inuit relative clause marker

Dear Linguist:

Can anyone help with references or information in regard to the
supposed recent appearance of a relative clause marker in Inuit? I
recall mention that such markers were non-existent prior to the
development of a written form of the language, c. 50 years ago, but
have been unable to find the source.

Message 2: Emotional Filter for Natural Speech

Subject: Emotional Filter for Natural Speech

Hello!

We are a research institute in computer graphics and would need a hint
in speech transformation. We are looking for tools that transform a
natural speech sentence (e.g. *.wav or *.aiff), spoken in a neutral
voice, into an emotional voice, e.g an angry or sad voice. Does
someone know someone who has such a tool?

Many thanks!

Ido & Oli
