Qs: Coda Restrictions; French Corpus

Editor for this issue: Naomi Fox <foxlinguistlist.org>


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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: coda restrictions

Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2003 02:38:13 +0000
From: Ingo Plag <plaganglistik.uni-siegen.de>
Subject: coda restrictions

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for languages with the following (or similar) peculiar
coda restrictions:

- word-finally, only nasals are possible codas
- word-internally, only nasals and /r/ are possible codas, with the latter 
only occurring before /k/ (ar.ki)

I'd also be very grateful for any comments or references on this (or a 
similar) phenomenon, and will provide a summary for the list.

Many thanks in advance.

Subject: French corpus for summarization evaluation

I am doing a PhD thesis on automatic summarization of French texts. I
need French texts to submit to the summarization system being tested,
for examples news articles. I would like those texts to be
accompagnied by short summaries, if possible. Has anyone heard of a
French corpus available for research purposes?
