Message 1: Qs: Korean Machine Translation System

Date: Thu, 23 Sep 93 21:44:36 EDQs: Korean Machine Translation System
From: <hkkimlcl.cmu.edu>
Subject: Qs: Korean Machine Translation System

I am interested in developing English-(interlingua)-Korean MT system or
in parsing of free word order language like Korean as my master
project. It will be experimental covering just a limited small text.
I want to know whether anybody or any group has already
developed/developing that kind of system.

If you let me know such a person or group, I'll appreciate you a lot.
I would like to share each other's information.

Thank you in advance.

Message 2: Query: Automated text summary systems

Date: Fri, 24 Sep 1993 14:53:55 Query: Automated text summary systems
From: Jeffrey Goldberg <goldbergnytud.hu>
Subject: Query: Automated text summary systems

I am seeking information on automated (computational)
text summary systems. I know very little about the field
and would appreciate information about

 (1) What sorts of systems exist (either commercially available
 or publically available.) Also information about work
 in progress would be very helpful.

 (2) References to published or semi-published material
 about text summary, problems, issues, prospects, etc.

 The more specific the information the better, but I would
 be happy with any help at this point.

Please send me mail, and I will send a follow-up on my findings
if requested to do so.

Message 3: Noun clause functions

Date: Fri, 24 Sep 1993 09:57:21 Noun clause functions
From: wachal robert s <rwachalumaxc.weeg.uiowa.edu>
Subject: Noun clause functions

Does anyone know an example of a "that" noun clause in English that has
any of the following functions: indirect object, objective complement,
object of preposition?

How about an indirect question (=headless relative) that functions as one
of the following: appositive, adjective complement?

I am interested in the claim that the priveleges of occurrence of these
two constructions are not the same.

Message 4: Q: Speech analysis software

Date: Fri, 24 Sep 93 11:51:48 CDQ: Speech analysis software
From: David Silva <davidutafll.uta.edu>
Subject: Q: Speech analysis software


I am currently looking into the availability of signal processing software for
either a DOS- or Mac-based computer. Upon checking the LINGUIST archives, I
found that the most recent general discussion on this topic was in March 1992.
Given that a lot happens in a short time these days, I would like to ask
subscribers if they would let me know about recent experience with whatever
software they're using. Some issues I'm interested in covering:

 -Names of programs and companies that develop them
 -Good and not-so-good features
 -Whether software X is good for teaching/research/both/other
 -System/Hardware requirements
 -Cost

Please forward comments to me directly: davidling.uta.edu
If there is interest, I will post a summary.
Many thanks.

Message 5: Programs in Native American Studies

From: Alan Munn <ENGALANMIZZOU1.missouri.edu>
Subject: Programs in Native American Studies

One of my students is interested in graduate work in Native American
languages, both in linguistics (mainly syntax) and literature/oral
tradition. Can anyone reccommend programs that cater to either one
or (preferably) both areas? Since I imagine that many of these will
be interdiscipliary programs, an idea of the faculty and what they do
would be quite helpful.

Thanks.
