Subject: query: morph. & synt. tools English


I am looking for public domain (for University usage) morphological
and syntactical software for English (on Mac OS X or PC - preference
for Mac)

I usually work on the French language, and use tools such as Cordial,
Nomino, Termino, etc.

However, I am currently on sabbatical in Australia (UTS, Sydney) and
need tools for English.

I would be grateful if anyone has anything interesting.

Kind regards,
Rachel Panckhurst.

Message 2: Acquisition of Case and Number

Subject: Acquisition of Case and Number

Dear colleagues,

I wonder if you could direct me to literature on acquisition of Case
and Number (preferably, but not exclusively, in Slavic) and,
particularly, on the interaction of the two.

I am familiar with a number of studies, but neither of them examines
the interaction of Number and Case in acquisition, e.g. Babyonyshev
(1993) "Acquisition of the Russian Case System"; Muller (1994) "Gender
and Number Agreement within DP"; Stenzel (1994) "Case Assignment and
Functional Categories in Bilingual Children"; Clahsen et al. (1994)
"The Seeds of Structure".

Please send your replies to .

Thanking you all in advance,
Galina Gordishevsky
