Subject: Trans-temporal reference?

(Discussing articles in names,) John Lawler wrote in LINGUIST 3.932:

|Sunday morning I encountered the following phrase on NPR:
| "...warships entering the territorial waters of the former
| Yugoslavia..."

Does this phrase have an interpretation not involving time-travel? How
does it work? Do other readers have the same difficulty I have with it?
Am I relying on domain knowledge that only extant states can claim
territorial waters, or is the source of my confusion directly
linguistic?

And is this, or is this not, the same as "warships entering the former
territorial waters of Yugoslavia"?

Are there any serious studies of what human phonetic distinctions
are audible to dogs?

Does anyone know of any databases of Spanish corpora and how I could access
them?

Thanks!

Subject: RENUMBER software


 Hi, is there anybody out there using the program called 'renumber'?
I was trying an old version that a friend passed me and it messed up the
files I used for testing it (large chunks of the file were missing after I
passed it through renumber). I think this may be due to the fact that these
files contained some graphics in them.
 The question is, is there any newer version of this program that
can work with Word Perfect 5.1 files and not get me in the kind of problem
I am describing? I would appreciate your help very much, thanks.
