Subject: Author identification references wanted

Hi,
I would appreciate any references or related research on methodologies
(computer or non-computer based) concerning:
a) author identification (the case that you don't know the author of a text)
b) author style.
I will summarize any answers if there are other people interested.
Thanks in advance

Message 2: Quantifier Scope and Phrasal Coordination

Date: Thu, 30 Sep 1993 13:42:45 Quantifier Scope and Phrasal Coordination
From: Michael Kac <kaccs.umn.edu>
Subject: Quantifier Scope and Phrasal Coordination


I would be interested in knowing to what extent (if any) certain
intuitions of mine about the examples below are shared.

 1. Every woman doesn't walk.
 2. Every woman runs and doesn't walk.
 3. Every woman doesn't run and walks.

The questions I'd like answers to are as follows:

 a. Do you find these exx. to be scope-ambiguous? If not, does the
 quantifier have wide or narrow scope? (For example, could (2)
 be paraphrased by *Every woman runs and not every woman
 walks*?)

 b. Does any of these sentences strike you as structurally odd in
 any way? If so, please elaborate.

Please contact me directly. If there is sufficient interest, I would
be happy to summarize to the list. It's possible that I might
respond with some further queries to individuals who answer this
call. My thanks in advance.

The idea of World Linguistics Day sounds interesting, but how did it
hook up with the Korean Alphabet day? And what's the story about the
latter, anyway?

Ignorently,

I am looking for either recent books or articles on Okinawan semantics,
pragmatics, and lexicography. If someone out there know about them, please let
me know. I need these books for my research as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance.
