 Hello,
 I am doing my MA in Applied Language Studies: Computing in
University of Kent at Canterbury. I've been working for my
next essay on "E-mail". Could anyone let me have some useful
information: how linguists can benefit by using e-mail, what
are distinctive features of e-mail(not only concerning sending
& receiving mails), and probablly some defects to reconsider...

 I've got Sproull's Connections(91) and Simpson's Planning for
Electronic Mail(82) and found them quite interesting and relevant
for my essay.
 Thank you in advance.

I'm interested in finding any intelligent/clear critiques of Lacan's linguistic
theories. If you know of anything published along these lines please let me
know.

Thanks again!

If there is anyone out there who is either a native speaker of or
reasonably conversant with Quechua, I'd like to solicit some data
regarding the morphosyntax of possessive constructions in the lg.
Anyone who'd be interested in helping me out is invited to contact
me directly at kaccs.umn.edu. My thanks in advance.

Message 4: Marking of Generics

Date: Tue, 8 Feb 1994 20:20:04 -Marking of Generics
From: Michael Kac <kaccs.umn.edu>
Subject: Marking of Generics


Are there languages in which there is some kind of overt
morphological or lexical marking to indicate genericity -- i.e. in
which e.g. *the lion* qua generic is formally distinguished from
*the lion* qua singular definite description? Responses should be
directed to me personally, at kaccs.umn.edu, and I'll summarize
to the list if the results are of sufficient interest.
