Message 1: Query

From: Elizabeth Garner <elizabethvenedig.ai.univie.ac.at>
Subject: Query

I'm looking for a corpus of advisory dialogues (in text form) that I would
be free to use as the basis of my PhD dissertation. In particular, I am
interested in (real-life) dialogues between an information-seeker and an
advisor, where to answer the clients queries the advisor needs to elicit
further information from the client. I have in mind perhaps bank-type
situations, (applying for loans...), obtaining information from social
service departments,
etc.

Thanks in advance.

Subject: Russian e-texts

Does anyone know of the availability of e-texts in Russian--either in Cyrillic
or in transliteration--in various styles/registers? I need them to conduct
searches for syntactic constructions. Could you please reply to me personally
at: WJGRIFFUKANVM.BITNET. Thank you in advance.

Subject: quoted vs. paraphrased speech

A colleague of mine is interested in finding references to work on the marking
of quoted vs. paraphrased speech in oral communication in any language. We
would appreciate any help. I'll post a summary if there seems to be enough
interest. Please reply to me at: ILW4SLSMVS.OAC.UCLA.EDU. Thanks,

I am working with Role and Reference Grammar (RRG). I would like
to know if there is anybody working with RRG who would like to discuss
issues related to research.
