Message 1: morphophonology; morphophonemics

Subject: morphophonology; morphophonemics

Does generative phonology really have a theoretical construct
equivalent to structuralist morphophonology or the American des-
criptivists' morphophonemics? I've been accustomed to talking
about morphologization, morpheme structure constraints, and so
on. But does there exist any real equivalence to the older
terms and concepts?

 Can anyone on the list recommend some references or recent work on
onomatopoeia (in any language)? I will post a summary of responses for
LINGUIST.
 If you are an expert in onomatopoeia yourself or know anyone who
is, please let me know.
 I'd very much appreciate your reply.

Message 3: Net Resources for Linguists?

From: Natalie Maynor <maynorRa.MsState.Edu>
Subject: Net Resources for Linguists?

I'm working on a paper on net resources for linguists, which I'll be
reading in early April at a meeting of SECOL (Southeastern Conference
on Linguistics). In addition to obvious uses of the net like e-mail
and discussion lists, I want to mention some specific collections of
data or applications -- e.g., linguistics.archive.umich.edu (which I
browsed through recently and found disappointly slim in its contents --
that's not a flame directed at its maintainers -- obviously not many
people have contributed to it).

What are some of the ftp archives or gopher sources you've found most
useful in your work? Any responses you send me will be doubly useful
in my paper: they'll enable me to offer more specifics, and they'll be
further evidence of the usefulness of lists like LINGUIST since I can
mention the ease with which I sent out this request and received replies.

I'm looking for resources for all areas of linguistics, btw, including
TESOL. Perhaps I should say especially TESOL since this particular SECOL
meeting is going to be combined with a TESOL meeting -- an area I do not
stay on top of via net-surfing or otherwise.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Message 4: Q: Lexicalization of phrases

From: "Marie Egan" <EGANhsscls.hssc.scarolina.edu>
Subject: Q: Lexicalization of phrases

 We are looking for references on phrases which may be or may be
becoming single lexical items such as "tape measure" or "credit card"
or on the processes by which this occurs. Any English examples would
also be welcome. Please send the information to us and we'll post a
summary to the list.
