Message 1: ToBI in Conversation Analysis?

Subject: ToBI in Conversation Analysis?

Dear all,

I would like to address especially (but not only) conversation
analysts with the following question: Has the phonetic transcription
ToBI been used in CA work (I have found information only on the work
of Stefan Rabanus: LINGUIST List 12.908), is it, actually, worth
transcribing intonation this way in CA at all, and are there already
any studies whose authors profitted from combining CA and ToBI
transcription systems?

Thank you,
best regards,

Marian Sloboda

Subject: German Morphological Generation

Dear all,

I would like to use a German morphological generator in dialogue
processing and therefore, I am looking for a freely available
morphological generation component.

Any help appreciated,
Petra Gieselmann
