Message 1: Singular 'they'

Date: 8 Apr 1994 11:15:53+1200
From: Kon Kuiper <ling007cantva.canterbury.ac.nz>
Subject: Singular 'they'

One of our graduates not on e-mail is working on 'singular they', i.e. the
use of they with singular antecedent. She is interested particularly in
cases where the gender of the antecedent is specified, e.g. the word 'boy'.
She would be interested in knowing if there is other work going on in this
topic and if there are collections of data pertaining to it. All help
gratefully received.

May I get information or contact with the persons who interest in:

 1) computational analysis of Arabic morphology
 2) Automatic Arabic - English translation?

Message 3: IPA to ASCII

Date: Fri, 08 Apr 94 13:19:46 CEIPA to ASCII
From: Grzesiek Staniak <KULHUMPLUMCS11.bitnet>
Subject: IPA to ASCII

Greetings,

Does anybody know how to represent the IPA phonetic alphabet in the ASCII code?
I'm writing quite a lot of letters now about phonology and have to use transcri
iption quite often in them, so that my own provisional inventions do not suffic
e. Are there any standards of such representation? Are you aware of any files c
oncerning them that I could download? I'm interested in the whole of IPA signs,
 even the more exotic ones.

Thanks for help. Please write to the address below.

Message 4: Chinese Characters for the Macintosh

From: <wclivax.ox.ac.uk>
Subject: Chinese Characters for the Macintosh

I wonder if anyone might know of any good packages for printing Chinese
characters on the Macintosh. I've come across a package by the Taiwanese
company Chiyi ("qiyi" in pinyin), but the characters are rather oddly shaped
and somewhat jagged. I've seen a mainland package for the IBM that's quite
good, but I don't know what it's called or whether there is a Mac version. I'd
be very grateful if someone can tell me.
