Message 1: Land and its historical meaning

Date: Fri, 20 May 1994 13:00:42 Land and its historical meaning
From: Roadkill on the information superhighwaySDFNCRritvax.isc.rit.edu <SDFNCRritvax.isc.rit.edu>
Subject: Land and its historical meaning

This query is posted for a friend who is not on the list. He (the friend) is a
lawyer doing some work for the Seneca Nation. The work concerns a dispute over
the issue of taxation. The original treaty (from the 1790's) refers to "land."
He is interested in the connotations of the word "land" 200 years ago.
Specifically, (from a legal point of view) did "land" refer to more than dirt,
but also to something more analogous to "country" (as in "this land is your
land," or "the land of the free")? Please respond directly to me and I will
post a summary if there is interest. Thanks.

Subject: Bengali/Assamese/Manipuri fonts

Dear Linguists:
Does anyone know of Bengali/Assamese/Manipuri (all three pretty much the
same) fonts for DOS or for the MAC?
Please reply to me personally.

Subject: Professional Research - Viable service for you?

Hello -

I'm a computer jock with a love of linguistics (BA and MA in
Linguistics) who's trying to merge my two interests. For over a year,
I've been developing an idea of building an information broker service
to the academic community, starting with research related to
Linguistics. Later, I would hope to broaden my base to humanities and/or
social sciences in general.

Below is my current mission statement for this business. I'd appreciate
feedback from folks on this list as to the real-world possibility of
making a service such as this work, both for my clients and for myself.
THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT! This business does not yet exist, although
the groundwork is being laid. Before I go much further, I need to ask
folks like you, my potential clients, if you or your affiliated
institutions would consider using these services, and equally important,
what you/your institutions would be willing to pay for them.

Please respond via email, and complete candor would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance -- Barbara

Message 4: backwards anaphora

Date: Sun, 22 May 1994 20:24:19 backwards anaphora
From: Dan Hardt <hardtlinc.cis.upenn.edu>
Subject: backwards anaphora

How common is backwards anaphora, ie, where a pronoun
or other proform precedes its antecedent? Has anyone
studied this empirically? I'd be very grateful to see
naturally-occurring examples, and statistics on the
frequency of backwards anaphora. Please respond by
email. I'll summarize if appropriate.
