Message 2: Relationship between linguistics & semiotics

From: <D.W.Saltderby.ac.uk>
Subject: Relationship between linguistics & semiotics

Has anyone a view on the relationship between linguistics and
semiotics or references to same? I am doing some research into this
area and it seems some people think linguistics is a branch of
semiotics whilst others think semiotics is a separate topic or even a
branch of linguistics.
My particular interest lies in whether the introduction of some
semiotic classifications of e.g. speech acts can be used in parsing.
Thanks in advance - I will post a summary if replies warrant it.

Subject: From Hippy to Yuppy

The obituary notices for Jerry Rubin prompt me to ask how linguists describe
the lexical set 'hippy,' 'yippy,' 'yuppy', 'yumpy' etc. and what term or
terms are used to refer to such a set?

Subject: Dissertation by Carole E. Chaski

I am reading Carole Elisabeth Chaski's dissertation, 'Syntactic Theories
and Models of Syntactic Change: A Study of Greek Infinitival
Complementation' and would like to know how to contact the author. Do any
of you have her email address?

Also, do you know if there is a published version of this dissertation?

Please respond to mpalmesemail.unc.edu (yes, it's palmes, not palmer).
Thank you.
