Message 1: Slavic in Britannica

Date: Tue, 19 Sep 1995 08:52:07 Slavic in Britannica
From: E. Wayles Browne <ewb2cornell.edu>
Subject: Slavic in Britannica

The Encyclopaedia Britannica has asked me to revise its articles on
Slavic languages: the section "Slavic languages" in its Macropaedia
article "Languages of the World" and also the short articles on individual
languages and on a few famous Slavists in its Micropaedia ("Ready
Reference"). I have to stick to the present length, so I cannot include
much new material. But I can make changes, corrections, updates, etc.

What would LINGUIST readers suggest? Please send me suggestions by
December, preferably to my own address: ewb2cornell.edu

Thank you,

 Dear Linguist list netters,

 I am scheduled to teach a graduate-level grammar course on language
 universals and linguistic typology in the Spring. I would appreciate
 your inputs regarding the textbook(s) and other related books and
 articles. Please send mail to <shinja.hwangsil.org>. Thanks.

Message 3: Q. Speech engine

Date: Wed, 20 Sep 1995 01:30:41 Q. Speech engine
From: Hideaki Sugai <sugaihawaii.edu>
Subject: Q. Speech engine

I am writing a text-speech conversion program which reads files written
in Thai. I am looking for a speech engine for 486 PC, which can speak
the phonetically converted PC files. The speech engine should be better
than commercialized PC sound card (such as Creative Lab's Sound Bluster 16),
but due to my budget, it should be cheaper than US$1500. Also it should be
able to modify pitch, accent, and length of vowels easily. If you know any
speech engine for PC, please let me know directly. My address is:

sugaiuhunix.uhcc.hawaii.edu

I will also post the names of the speech engine, the distributers, and
the price later on this net.

Message 4: CIDE

From: "Lazar A. Peter" <lapidosiris.elte.hu>
Subject: CIDE

Does anybody know about reviews of the new CIDE dictionary, and could you
tell me where to find them, if anything has already come out?
The thing is I'm working on one right now, so I thought this might be an idea.
Thanks for your help in advance.
