Message 1: women again

Date: Mon, 22 Nov 1993 09:35:33 women again
From: ursula.doleschal <ursula.doleschalwu-wien.ac.at>
Subject: women again

I would like to remail this urgent query, since I have received only 2
answers (possibly because of the header Diminutives which made all the
Women experts skip the query):
I have got a query on women's use of diminutives and on the other hand
diminutives being used to address/describe/name etc. women. I sort of dimly
remember that their have been studies on the frequency of diminutives under
both aspects, but now can just remember Robin Lakoff's book. Can anyone
point me to empirical studies of the problem and if possible at the same
time tell me the results? Please answer to me privately, I will report to
the list later on.

Message 4: Lapsus Corpora

Date: Mon, 22 Nov 93 14:10 EST
From: Aleksander Murzaku <0006353692mcimail.com>
Subject: Lapsus Corpora

Dear Linguist List:

I should be very interested to know about studies, papers and especially
corpora on writting errors. At the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, we
have a similar corpus containing Italian lapsi linguae but I would be more
interested about lapsi calami. The corpora can be in any language but
I would prefere English, French, German, Finnish, Italian, Spanish (both
European and American), Portuguese (both). If somebody has that
information, please let me know if they are available and if they can be
sent by e-mail, floppy or paper. If I have interesting answers, I'll post
the results to the list.

Thank you in advance,

Aleksander Murzaku
