Subject: Tagalog Equi Query

I'd very much like to hear from anyone who has worked on the question
of whether, in Tagalog, EQUI can apply to non-Agent non-Focus NPs, as
in examples along the lines of 'I don't want to die in Los Angeles',
with LA as Focus.

Subject: DICTATION


Please help me: find a correction algorithm Visual C++ Borland for dictations
(French,English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian...); an ASCII database
containing representative dictations for each of these languages; a short
descriptive grammar in ASCII for the same languages... thanks in advance....
contributions will of course be rewarded.

Message 3: "customer buy-in"

Date: Wed, 12 Oct 94 15:35:48 IS"customer buy-in"
From: Miriam Shlesinger <F2B101VM.BIU.AC.IL>
Subject: "customer buy-in"

Perhaps someone on the list knows the meaning of the phrase
"customer buy-in" which I encountered in the following context:

The five styrofoam models were presented, and, after heated debate, two finalis
ts were selected. At this point, following normal rituals, marketing would
have "made the call," Smith said, ordering the group to proceed in one
direction or the other. But Smith decided not to decide. Speed was of the
essence, but he sensed it wasn't time to choose. CUSTOMER BUY-IN was a must
and it hadn't occurred yet. So Smith waffled.

The phrase does not appear in any of the dictionaries on my shelf (including
quite recent ones, both general and specialized). Any hints would be
welcome.

Thanks.

From: Mail Delivery Subsystem <PostmasterPrinceton.EDU>
Subject: Development of Pronouns

A student working on development of pronouns and proper names in
children is interested in languages that use constructions such as
"who is you name?". I recall seeing a discussion of this on the
network a while back. Can anyone supply references or other
information on thie usage?

 Thanks,
