Message 1: theories of grammar

Date: Thu, 9 Dec 1993 08:09:52 -theories of grammar
From: shetzer heidi <hshetzeruxa.cso.uiuc.edu>
Subject: theories of grammar

I received a BA in linguistics from a university in the United States. The
only type of linguistic theory of grammar I have been exposed to is the
Chomsky-GB type. What alternative theories of grammar exist out there
besides the Chomsky-type stuff? For some reason I have only been exposed
to this and I'd like to learn about alternatives.
 Thanks

 Dear Michael: A brief query about another lesser-known language
 of the southern (well, eastern) shores of the Mediterranean. Do
 you know of a list devoted to, or a person fluent in, what the
 Library of Congress calls Modern Syriac and its speakers seem to
 call Assyrian? I am in mildly desperate need of an informant.
 Can you recommend a place to look for one? Qapla'--and thanks.

Subject: Q: Wampanoag/Algonkian refs

Can anyone provide references to descriptive works on Wampanoag and
(presuming that's sparsely documented) its closer congeners in Algonkian?
Please reply to bnbbn.com. (This will change to bnlightstream.com
in a week, but mail will be forwarded from bbn.com for a while.)

Subject: request for info. about film

Is there a video which shows the process of articulation inside the vocal
tract? I remember an old film based on x-rays, but there must be more recent
material than that. Info. about title, from where it can be rented, etc.
would be appreciated. Please reply privately to ishawvm1.nodak.edu. Thanks.
