Subject: FOLK ETYMOLOGY - HAM


Would anyone know the origin or some folk etymology for the expression HAM
which refers to a RADIO AMATEUR ??

I was told that some articles on the topic might have appeared in
publications from the CANADIAN RADIO RELAY LEAGUE (CRRL) or the AMERICAN
RADIO LEAGUE (ARL) or in a radio amateur magazine called QST. Is there any
LINGUIST subscribers who are also radio amateurs and could give me an
electronic address (or second best snail mail address) for these
organizations ??

I will compile and post all the information received at a later date...

Many thanks

I need some help. I do not know of any article of paper by R. Coppieter
other than the one from 1987 published in` Language' with the title.
"Competence differences between native and near-native speaker". I would
appreciate information about more recent work by her. Thanks.

Subject: Nartey 1982 reference

I am having to do a very quick turn round on some proofs of an article
whose author is not in e-mail or phone contact. I have a reference to
work by Nartey 1982 on code-switching between an unnamed African
language and English or French. This reference is missing from the
reference list. If anyone on linguist can supply the details of this
reference ASAP, I'll be most grateful.

Message 4: Natural Language Processing or Phrase Indexing

From: Y. Shum <shuychonmehta.anu.edu.au>
Subject: Natural Language Processing or Phrase Indexing

I'm doing a research which involves automatically generating semantically
 meaningful indexing phrases from textual documents.As far as I know,there are 2
 main
ways
of doing it.The first way is by Natural Language Processing(NLP) method.The
 second way is by using sophisticated lexical analyser to identify correlation
between keywords in the document(This is actually a refinement of the
 traditional way of indexing documents).

 I'm looking for research articles/proceedings/etc that describe with details
the 2 methodologies mentioned away(a lot of articles I read just mentioned them
without describing how they are actually achieved).

 I'll be very grateful if I could receive any help/tips/hints/advice.It'll
be good if I could access archive sites that holds documents related to
these issues ,or any relevant Gopher sites .
 Thanks.
