I am seeking reliable OCR Software that can accurately interpret scanned
romanized texts with many diacritical marks, chiefly for Sanskrit and other
Indic languages. Any helpful suggestions? Please reply at above address, or
for internet subscribers: sinsleryalevm.ycc.yale.edu. Thanks. S. Insler

Hi,
I am Valentina Apresjan from University of Southern California.
I am working on the linguistic representation of emotions in English, Russian
and Kinyarwanda. I would appreciate it very much if anybody who has
ever worked in this area or is aware of some linguistic work on emotions,
could help me with finding the relevant literature. I am mostly concerned
with semantic descriptions, and I am also interested in the metaphors in which
emotions are conceptualized in different languages.
I would be most grateful for any references.
Thank you in advance,
Valentina.
