Thanks to everyone who enquired about the Melbourne Association for the
History of Language. Dhumbadji! #4 is now out and on its way. Big
thankyous to the trusting souls who have paid in advance, monies
arrived OK and you'll get airmail service. Contributions are invited
for the next edition, we don't have to limit ourselves on page length
but we do ask that stuff is not too long. Anyway, thanks again, and I'll
keep you all up to date. Paul Sidwell. Linguistics, La Trobe Uni.

Subject: new list: LFG List
I'd like to announce the formation of a new mailing list. The LFG
List is a forum for discussion of linguistic, mathematical, and
computational issues within the framework of Lexical-Functional
Grammar, including:
 - linguistic observations and their treatment in LFG
 - formal devices and their `fit' to linguistic data
 - computational implementation of LFG
To subscribe to the LFG List, send a message to
 majordomolist.stanford.edu
containing only the following line:
subscribe lfg
You will get back a message welcoming you to the list. To make a
submission to the LFG List, send it to:
 lfglist.stanford.edu
We look forward to your participation!

Message 5: References on general cognition

From: Paul Deane <an995FreeNet.Carleton.CA>
Subject: References on general cognition
If anyone is looking for references on general cognition in language, they
may find my book GRAMMAR IN MIND AND BRAIN (1992, Mouton de Gruyter) to be
of interest.
