Message 1: spanish corpora

Subject: spanish corpora


I am planning a research project to build some tools for
morphological/syntactic analysis of Spanish and am having difficulty
accessing suitable corpora. I would be grateful if anyone could send me
relevant info. on extant Spanish corpora and those in construction,
and the possibility of access - either by remote login or FTP, if
free, or arrangements for site licence if not.

yours

Subject: Query: Are "theme" and "patient" the same or different?

Some scholars dealing with thematic roles, (aka theta roles, semantic
cases, deep cases) use the term "theme", others say "patient". A few,
such as Van Valin, claim that the two are different categories, and
that it matters in some languages.

I have never seen any language in which alleged "themes" were treated
any differently than alleged "patients". Does anyone know of a
language where it is necessary to distinguish them? Or where anyone
presents any evidence on the matter?

Subject: Query: Cherokee grammar

A colleague is trying to learn Cherokee from a textbook and tapes, and is
frustrated by lack of grammatical explanation. Can anyone suggest a Cherokee
grammar, in either English or Japanese, that she can use? Thanks.
