Qs: Real-Time Study; Chinese Spoken Word Frequency
Editor for this issue: James Rider
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: Real-Time Study
From: Yoshiyuki Asahi <yasahikokken.go.jp>
Subject: Real-Time Study
I am wondering if I can collect references on language change studies
based on real-time framework rather than apparent-time framework.
I would like to know any relevant studies either in sociolinguistics,
historical linguistics, contact linguistics or any other relevant areas
I promise that I will post a summary when available.
Thank you in advance for your kind assistance.

Does anyone know of a corpus (or summary of a corpus) of spoken Mandarin
that includes frequency data? I am interested in compiling a core spoken
vocabulary list for modern Chinese.
Subject Language(s): Chinese, Mandarin (cmn)
