LINGUISTs:
I am sending this message on behalf of a colleague who is not currently
subscribed to LINGUIST. He is looking for a print corpus of modern
colloquial Turkish for use in syntactic analysis. Any suggestions or
references should be forwarded directly to him. His address is:
smootccit.arizona.edu. Thanks to all!

I have a very fine M.A. (in English studies) graduate student who is
interested in a Ph. D. program which combines Rhetoric/Comp and
linguistics. We'd appreciate hearing from people, especially
grad. students, in such programs.

Many thanks,

Message 3: Language areas in the brain

Date: Mon, 26 Sep 1994 11:37:09 Language areas in the brain
From: Steve Chandler <chandlerraven.csrv.uidaho.edu>
Subject: Language areas in the brain

 In a quick overview of neurolinguistics for an introductory
psycholinguistics course, the students have raised a couple of questions
that I don't know the answers to. The cytoarchitecture of Brocas area and
of the inferior parietal area (supramarginal and angular gyri) are said
to be (virtually?) unique to humans.
 1) Are the unique cell arraangements restricted to the
 dominant/language hemisphere or are they found on
 both hemispheres?

 2) If they are restricted to the dominant hemisphere, what
 happens in a young child when the nondominant side has
 to compensate for injury or removal of the dominant areas?

 3) In instances of shift to the nondominant side in young
 children, do researchers see any evidence of neural
 reorganization similar to that reported in the motor
 cortex of chimps following amputation of a finger?

Message 4: Textfiles of Rabelais.

From: Dr R Doctor <doctorparcom.ernet.in>
Subject: Textfiles of Rabelais.

I have been asked to present a paper on Applications of Computers
to Rabelais. The various tools are ready, unfortunately I do not
have a ready entered text of Rabelais.
 Does anybody know where I can ftp rabelaisian texts ? Or could
anybody please give me a contact node where I can get the data.
 Time is short and I just do not have the patience and the energy
to type in Rabelais in French.
 Many thanks in advance.
