Message 1: Seeking Langacker reference

From: David Scarratt <davidscse.unsw.edu.au>
Subject: Seeking Langacker reference

In a paper by Ronald Langacker entitled 'The symbolic nature
of cognitive grammar: The meaning of _of_ and of _of_-periphrasis'
(in Martin Puetz (ed) 1992 _Thirty Years of Linguistic Evolution_.
Philadelphia: Benjamins) there is a reference to the following:

 Langacker, R. W.
 [1992] [To appear]. Possession and Possessive Constructions.

I have not been able to find this item. Can anyone tell me more
about it (such as, for example, has it appeared yet, and if so,
where)?

Subject: Case Systems in use

How many readers have used a Case system in a NL application?

We're interested in your experiences and the conclusions you drew from
them, as well as any details of your particular semantic roles and the
NL task. Replies by email, please; we'll post a summary to the list.

Thanks in advance,

Subject: Awali

Is there anyone who can tell me which is the language of the following
song (by Pierre Bensusan), and what is the meaning of this text?

Awali, Aale'fa nie say
Aie Faali, Ai laa-o fane' oue'
Awaali, whode' - d'mma doho manoo-ho
Amaani nemma fid'n so.

Awali. Ale oma fin'way
Amma ma ma ne vo^ fa wo^
F'ma neh s't' beie

A fee, O-o-oui la^ ma-ne'-sai
O ma-meh fa^ me^ness
Kin'd' way

E na fane' o^ fa
Tchi' Kengue'

In the complete version of this song, each paragraph is preceded and
followed by paragraphs in French.
