Anyone who knows her address (e-mail, snail-mail, or a phone number),
please send an e-mail to me directly. Thank you!

Message 2: Computational Linguistics Programs

Date: Fri, 1 Oct 93 09:51:32 -05Computational Linguistics Programs
From: "Pete Schult" <schu0201gold.tc.umn.edu>
Subject: Computational Linguistics Programs

I am an undergraduate looking at Ph.D. programs and tracks in computational
linguistics. In 1986 _Computational Linguistics_ put out a 2 volume listing of
such programs throughout the world which gave lists of courses and faculty with
an interest in computational liguistics.

1) Does anyone know of a more recent and up-to-date list of CL programs and
interested faculty?

In 1982 the National Academy of Sciences published their _Assessment of
Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States_ which included an assessment
of 35 linguistics Ph.D. programs in the U.S. Data included numbers of faculty
members, number of graduates over the previous 5 years, number of students,
median time to complete the degree, peer ratings of the program, and so on.

2) Does anyone know of a more recent and up-to-date study of linguistics
graduate programs along these lines? In particular, are such data available on
CL tracks/programs?

Since I'm sure there are others asking these same questions, I will post a
summary of responses to the list.

Thanks.

Subject: Hyphenation rules


I am interested in rules for hypenation in European languages and in particular
how they differ from language to language. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Message 4: Q-Words for 'If'

Date: Thu, 30 Sep 93 10:02:38 EDQ-Words for 'If'
From: <fintelMIT.EDU>
Subject: Q-Words for 'If'


I would like to know about languages that have a simple question word
corresponding to the conditional subordinator ('if'). English can use
'when' in some cases, but often has to resort to 'under what
condition' or 'under which circumstances'. Of course, 'when' may be
bimorphemic. But what I am curious about is what languages there are
that have a lexicalized form that is THE question word for 'if'.

Please send email to me and not the whole list. I will post a summary
if there's interest.

Thanks.
