Subject: dialogue journals

I'm writing on behalf of a student who wants to expand her
data base of dialogue journals exchanged between native
English speakers (not, e.g., those used in ESL classes). If
anyone has used dialogue journals and would be willing to allow
access to them (or portions of them) -- or knows of any teachers,
etc. who use them -- she would be grateful. Please respond
directly to me, and I'll pass on anything I get. Thanks.

A friend who is working on cultural history of the early 19th century is
looking for anything written on early 19th century philology as an emerging
nationalistic academic discipline. Anything on the political context of 18th
century and early 19th century philology (up to Humboldt) would be useful.
There's a rumor that a new book on philology and nationalism has appeared or is
about to; can anyone identify it?

Message 3: query: speech synthesis for stroke surviver

Subject: query: speech synthesis for stroke surviver

I am looking for pointers to equipment perhaps analogous to that used by
Stephen Hawking for vocal communication.

The father of an acquaintance suffered a stroke some years back,
impairing peripheral motor functions of the cortex involved with speech.
The Lions Club have offered to subsidize "a computer" if that were
useful to him. I have offered to investigate on her (my friend's) and
his behalf.

I know speech synthesis from ASCII text is standard on Amiga PCs. It
appears to be syllable based, considering the trouble it runs into with
names like "Michael" ([mi-ka-el]). I know of but have no exposure to
other systems.

Please post replies directly to me. I will summarize to the list.
