Don't forget Quang's "Phrases anglaises sans sujet
grammatical apparent," _Langages_ 14 (1969):44-51,
reprinted in translation in Zwicky's 1971 _Studies out
in left field: Defamatory essays presented to James
D. McCawley_ (Edmonton: Linguistic Research Inc.),
and possibly elsewhere.

Re Lexical borrowing: hope there's no duplication here, as I didn't read
Linguist for about a week, but there's a dissertation by Julie Lovins
on lexical borrowing in Japanese. I think it's University of Chicago in
the late 70's.

I have been playing with Prolog for a bit, but when I delved into
the new object-oriented C I noticed that there are some tremendously
useful capabilities built into the approach, including inheritance
(The Head Feature Convention!), multiple inheritance and overides
(to cover the exceptions), strong typed classes and other features
which may make the sophisticated and unwieldy C++ a tremendous tool
for linguists. Think C is a magnificent implementation on the Mac -
the best environment for programming I have seen in a long time.
Borland's C++ (2.0) on the DOS side looks good too - once I free
up the necessary 16 meg of Hard Disk I will find out (Think is just
5 Meg).
I would be interested to know if any other linguists are working in
C++ and would appreciate any code or object classes that can be made
available. My own goal is a quick and dirty parser on Autolexical
lines, with separate parses for syntax, logico-semantics, morpho-
syntax and morphophonology (at least).
