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.

Message 1: Pragmatics Status of the Art
Date: 18-May-2007
From: Jefsey Morfin <jefseyjefsey.com>
Subject: Pragmatics Status of the Art

I am interested in the support of languages on the Internet and subsequent
developping 'semantic processing'. My analysis shows me that there are four
digital relational levels at stake.

(1) plug to plug electric interconnectibility [medium]
(2) end to end interoperability (Internet) [syntax]
(3) brain to brain interintelligibility [semantics]
(4) mind to mind interunderstandability [pragmatics].

where languages are brain to brain protocols (supported by accepted
referents), and relations are supported by pramatics conventions (supported
by common context] and services, with 'mentale' and 'personale' as brain to
brain and mind to mind equivalent to computers' 'locale'.

I work on a document on the e-empowerment path of endangered languages from
near death to active presence on digital and semantic networks. I would
like to know:

(1) people/mailing list(s) engaged in the same kind of research.
(2) where to find (site, book, ?) the best pragmatics status of the art,
and the work which has been engaged in pragmatics processes.

I thank you for your help.
