Subject: Phonetic Catalan word-list?

I am interested in looking at lexical neighborhood density in Catalan.
Does anyone know where I might find a phonetically transcribed, 
computer-readable list of Catalan words or stems?

Message 2: Image schema & schema (and script)

Subject: Image schema & schema (and script)

 Dear Everybody
 Image schema is a popular term in cognitive linguistics. According to the
 Invariance Principle (Lakoff), Image schema controls the cross-domain
 mapping of conceptual metaphor. But once we relate this theory to
 psychology, there is a term confusion. i.e. how is image schema related to
 schema (and script) in psychology? Is schema a superordinate term for image
 schema ? or they are not the same thing at all?
 Any one would like to commenrt on this?
