Message 1: Suitable Textbook for Undergraduate Semantics Class

Subject: Suitable Textbook for Undergraduate Semantics Class

Greetings,

I'm currently on a faculty exchange to Brigham Young University's
Hawaii campus -- a tough assignment!!!! As happens frequently in these
types of exchanges, I have been asked to teach a class that is not really
central to my specializations. I need help in deciding upon a semantics
textbook suitable for undergraduate English, TESL and linguistics majors.
Also, I'd appreciate any suggestions for course content.

Thank you,

Bill Eggington

Message 2: SOUNDEX Software Question

Date: Mon, 02 Oct 1995 15:32:25 SOUNDEX Software Question
From: Gregory V. Gouzev <gouzevgvsun.mcs.clarkson.edu>
Subject: SOUNDEX Software Question


Dear Linguists!

There is a wonderful search algorithm for English words based on phonetic
properties of the searched items. It is called SOUNDEX. Essentially, it
provides a way to conduct fuzzy searches and find everything which
sounds somewhat like the entered words with a given degree of proximity.

Does anybody know of similar algorithms for foreign languages? Has anybody
done any customization of the original SOUNDEX written 25 years ago? Please
reply directly or through the group.

Message 3: Linguistic Inserurity

Date: Mon, 02 Oct 1995 19:26:21 Linguistic Inserurity
From: hildo honorio do couto <hihoguarany.cpd.unb.br>
Subject: Linguistic Inserurity

Dear linguists,
A colleague and ex-student of mine - who is not on the list -
intends to do a research on the subject of linguistic insecurity.
She knows that this belongs to a broader framework, namely
language attitudes. If anybody has any bibliographic suggestion about
this subject, both theoretical and empirical, she would appreciate
very much. If enough information is provided, we will give a
summary for the netters.
Thanks in advance.
