Message 1: Query about ECM

Date: Fri, 12 Mar 93 16:01:43 MSQuery about ECM
From: FD00000 <FD00UTEP.BITNET>
Subject: Query about ECM

Does anyone know of a verb in English (or any other language,
for that matter) which is OBLIGATORILY ECM? The closest I've
been able to come is _consider_:
 (1) I consider Mary to be intelligent.
 (2) *I consider that Mary is intelligent.
But this is not as clear as it might appear, since _consider_
does take a tensed _that_ clause when it is used in a factive
sense:
 (3) Considering that Mary has never been to Arizona,
 she really knows a lot about it.

For those of you more familiar with Standard Theory terminology,
what I am asking is whether there are verbs which obligatorily
trigger SOR (Subject to Object Raising).

Please respond directly to me. Thanks!

Subject: Re: Monolog / Dialog

This is query/request for information
on work done on the interaction of monolog and dialog.
Or in CA terms -of when and where and how
speakers take extended turns and what those
turns accomplish.

Any work on this area - I can't find any -
would be appreciated.
Discourse analytic attempts at the analysis of
monolog - since Montgomery /Coulthard - would
also be most welcome.

yours

Message 3: Possible words in English

Date: Thu, 11 Mar 93 14:52:58 PSPossible words in English
From: Ernie Limperis <ernienli.com>
Subject: Possible words in English


A colleague is wondering whether anyone knows of a computational
procedure for deciding whether a string is a possible word in English,
using, for example, morphological rules and without resorting to a
dictionary or lexicon lookup.

Please respond to me directly--I will summarize the responses.
Thanks!

Message 4: Afrikaans phonetics (Query)

Date: 14 Mar 1993 10:03:00 -0600Afrikaans phonetics (Query)
From: Michael Kac <kaccs.umn.edu>
Subject: Afrikaans phonetics (Query)


On behalf of a student in a class that I taught this past quarter, I'm writing
to inquire whether Afrikaans, like Dutch, has voiced velar fricatives. The
question arises in the context of a phonology problem in which no such
segments appear phonetically in the data but in which there's motivation for
positing them underlyingly. Please respond to me directly at the following
address:

 kaccs.umn.edu

Many thanks.
