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.
For my PhD I am analysing conversations over Instant Messaging (Gmail chat). Since these conversations are already in electronic format, I wanted to know if there is any electronic software available that I could use for my analysis. I will be very grateful if anyone can provide me with guidance on this front.
