Message 1: COMPUTER STORAGE AUDIO

Date: Thu, 24 Oct 1991 17:46 -0300+1
From: <FACUNDESmpeg.anpa.br>
Subject: COMPUTER STORAGE AUDIO
DENNY MOORE ASKS ANOTHER QUESTION:
 If tape recordings of human speech are stored as computer
files, to be indexed and played back for rough phonetic transcription
(not spectrography or something refined), what is the MINIMUM space
necessary for an hour of speech, using low sampling rates and
data compression? The SIL sound analysis box, CECIL, appears
to use only 10K per second.
ANSWERS ALSO CAN BE SENT TO: MOOREMPEG.ANPA.BR

Subject: INDEXING DAT
DENNY MOORE ASKS:
 (1) IS THERE A WAY TO INDEX WORDS ON DAT TAPE SO THAT
THEY CAN BE RECOVERED BY THE RECORDER/PLAYER? THAT IS,
PUT SOME SORT OF SIGNAL OR INDEX NUMBER ON THE TAPE, NEAR
THE WORD?
ANSWERS ALSO CAN BE SENT TO: MOOREMPEG.ANPA.BR

Subject: Query
Could anyone provide me some information about lexical borrowings? I've
noticed that when Chinese bilinguals converse in Chinese, they sometimes have
English words. Any literature in this aspect? Thanks in advance.

 Querie -- Ogham:
 I am somewhat of a neophyte looking for people familiar with
the various forms of Celtic languages (and NON-Celtic inputs)
involved in Ogham inscriptions (all locations and instances).
Are there still people out there fooling around with this stuff?!?
References to books and articles would be appreciated, too (just as
long as no-one seriously mentions Robert Graves).

From: <Alexis_Manaster_Ramermts.cc.wayne.edu>
Subject: Query: Romanian dialects
Is there anybody out there who is (or knows) an expert on Romanina
(I mean Romanian) dialects, especially one called Meglenoromanian?

Message 6: query

Date: Fri, 25 Oct 91 00:14:23 IST
From: David Gil <RHLE813HAIFAUVM.BITNET>
Subject: query
A query for experts on Vietnamese:
Thompson (1965:179) and others discuss the following two forms:
(a) /moi/ (with dot under /o/) "every"; and
(b) /moi/ (with circumflex and tilde above /o/) "each".
Can anybody tell me more about these two forms, or direct me to
published descriptions and/or analyses?
In particular, are these two forms related, either
synchronically/derivationally or diachronically?
In additon, if there are any native speakers of Vietnamese
out there amongst LINGUIST subscribers, I would very much
appreciate being able to elicit some syntactic and semantic
judgements of constructions containing these two forms.
Thanks,
David Gil
