Dear Colleagues,

I am searching for OCR (Optical Character Recognition) Software for
IPA transcriptions. I am doing it for a German dictionary.

Can somebody advise me where to start searching or who to contact?

Please feel free to reply.

Subject: Pedagogical Grammar for EFL Teachers

I am doing research into English grammaticology and am looking for titles
of 'pedagogical grammar books for EFL teachers' published outside the Uk
and the USA. So far I have managed to find Graustein et al 1977, Edmondson
et al 1977 and Dirven et al 1989. Are you aware of any recent work in this
area of English grammar writing?

Many thanks
