Message 1: Query: Okrand/Klingon

Date: Tue, 22 Feb 1994 11:44:24 Query: Okrand/Klingon
From: Joseph P Stemberger-1 <stembergmaroon.tc.umn.edu>
Subject: Query: Okrand/Klingon

Does anyone have an e-mail address for Marc Okrand?

While reading the Klingon dictionary, it wasn't clear to me whether /D/ is
a palatoalveolar stop (which as far as I know never occurs in human
languages except allophonically, so would be cute to put in Klingon) or a
more mundane retroflex.

Just an idle question, but I'd be interested in the answer. If anyone
knows the answer, send me an e-mail message. Barring that, if anyone has
an e-mail address (or even snail-mail) for Marc Okrand, I'd be appreciative.

Hi

There are two things I know about. The first is the Hansard Corpus
from the Canadian Parliament which is (you'd never guess)
French-English. As I remember we got this through the DCI ACL as I
recall and I guess if you mail Susan Warwick Armstrong at Geneva you
will be able to get a CD Rom of it. It is fairly large, though I can't
remember how large.

The second thing I know about is that there is a bilingual aligned
corpus(around 2M in each L) of English French telecommunications
texts. We recently participated in a project which cleaned up and
tagged these texts and the intention was to release them through the
DCi-ACL. The final report on the project should be delivered in a few
days.

Hope that info is of some use.

Subject: Navajo query

Does anyone know of a university program offering summer language study
in Navajo and/or other Southern Athapascan languages? I am
particularly interested in Western Apache dialects.

 Thanks,
