Subject: Russian Hyphenation


According to the United States Goverment Printing Office Style Manual, March
1984, under rules for Russian Syllabification (pg 438), consonantal units
may not be divided.

They list the following consonantal units: (KOI-7 transliteration)
bl, br ml
wl, wr pl, pr
gl, gr sk, skw, skr, st, stw, str
vd tw, tr
kl, kr fl, fr
dw, dr

Should the following also be considered non-seperable consonantal units
for the purpose of hyphenation:

s~, {k, sl, spl, twl, stwl, hl, {l, spr
mr, zr, {r, hr, ~r, {t, ~t, sw, kv, gv, hv

Thanks,

Oops! I recently posted a request for a reference on the claim that
passives are more frequent than actives. I should have said LESS
frequent! (Must have been the heat...)

Message 4: Judgements Wanted

From: Zoann Branstine <branstincs.wisc.edu>
Subject: Judgements Wanted

The following scale appears on a service follow-up survey sent out by Honda:

Completely satisfied - Somewhat dissatisfied - somewhat satisfied - Delighted

For me, "somewhat satisfied" is worse than "somewhat DISsatisfied".

However, switching the order of the two also produces an odd scale, since it
mixes "satisfied"s with "dissatisfied"s.

This was just an observation, though before I write to Honda to suggest they
change their questionnaire it might be nice to know I'm not the only person
who finds it strange.

Subject: Japanese software

I need to include some Japanese text (both kana and kanji) in a camera-ready
manuscript I am preparing. Does anybody have any suggestions for any
kana/kanji software I can use with a PC (with Windows) and an HP laserjet
printer? I'd prefer something that's also compatible with Word Perfect for
Windows. Thanks.
