This is not a linguistic query. In your institutions, what is the defini-
tion of an emeritus/emerita faculty member? Preferably with the actual
wording of whatever guidelines are appropriate. I am asking on behalf of
someone who has not indicated intent to retire, but has been offered the
status of emeritus, the definition of which in his institution includes
"commitment to retire". This sounds more like an attempt to get rid of
older faculty than like a helpful way to designate retired or semi-retired
faculty. Is it usual to offer this designation to people before they
themselves have indicated an interest in retiring soon?
Please send responses directly to me: morsegagucs.indiana.edu
and if there is enough information I will summarize for the list.
Thank you very much!

Message 3: German speech recognizers

From: Maria Strobel <STROBELFAW9370.FAW.UNI-ULM.DE>
Subject: German speech recognizers


Hello everybody,

I am looking for a speaker-independent speech recognizer for German
which can handle telephone quality and a vocabulary size of
at least 100-200 words. Vocabulary definition/application development
should be as comfortable as possible.
Does anybody have experience with using one of the existing products,
or functionalities like keyword-spotting, talk-over, noise cancellation?
I am aware of systems from Lernout & Houspie, CNET and Scott. Are there
any other relevant systems which I should know?
Please reply to me directly and I'll post a summary to the list.

Subject: ENGLISH<->HINDI Translation


I am a linguistics student interested in any suitable references
which would help in a machine translation project involving the
languages English and Hindi. In particular Linguistic dictionaries
for translation from English to Hindi and Hindi to English. The
project is due end of this semester (around mid October). Please
reply as soon as possible.
