Message 1: Georgian (Kartuli, that is) pen-pal

Date: Thu, 12 Dec 1991 11:36-0500
From: Allan C. Wechsler <ACWYUKON.SCRC.Symbolics.COM>
Subject: Georgian (Kartuli, that is) pen-pal
I recently had forwarded to me a letter from a woman in Georgia. She's
looking for pen-pals in the States. Her address:
USSR
Republic of Georgia
Tbilisi 380077
Vazha-Pshavela Ave. 51
I block, building V, flat 4
to: Marina Babalashvili
And another thing. She says she is a philologist by profession. Has
anybody in this august crowd ever heard of her?
I answered her, but that shouldn't stop anybody else. I haven't had a
response yet; I have no sense of how reliable the erstwhile-Soviet
postal system is. I half-expect my envelope to come back with "USSR"
circled and annotated "no such country".
Finally, what's the network penetration of the Soviet Union like? Is
anyone exchanging email with Georgia?

Message 3: Korean desktop publishing software

Date: Fri, 13 Dec 1991 11:32 EST
From: Herb Stahlke <00HFSTAHLKELEO.BSUVC.BSU.EDU>
Subject: Korean desktop publishing software
A colleague of mine is looking for a DOS-based desktop publishing package that
for Korean. It should have both Han gul and Han moon capabilities and drivers
for HPII series laser printers. Support for Katakana would be useful but not
essential. I'd appreciate any suggestions, and I'll be happy to put them
together for anyone else who might be interested.
I am sending this out on both Linguist and Humanist listservers.
Thanks.

Subject: Public Domain Corpora
A friend who has no access to email wants to get in touch with whoever
it is that is making a database of public-domain corpora. If this
means anything to anyone on LINGUIST, please let me know ASAP.

Message 5: query S -> NP NP

From: "Wlodek Zadrozny" <wlodzwatson.ibm.com>
Subject: query S -> NP NP
In the Economist, March 16th 1991, the following passage appeared:
(...) Standing on the stage where Michael Dukakis had stood so often
was Douglas Wilder of Virginia, America's first elected black governor.
But no liberal he. (...)
How common is the construction in the last sentence? What about similar
constructions of the type "S -> NP NP"
I've seen in print "His name John Macnamara".
Can anything interesting be said about them?
