Subject: INFORMATION DESIRED

DEAR LINGUISTERS:

Does anyone know where/how I can obtain copies of the various Proceedings
 published by The International Congress of Linguistics?

Additionally, I am looking for information on how to subscribe to Semiotica.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. (This might be information you could
send to my personal e-mail address?)

Thanking you in advance,

I am looking for a copy of the Mandarin version of the Jan/Feb 1995
issue of _The Unesco Courier_.I have unsuccessfully tried to locate it in
any of the libraries in Malaysia/Singapore. Can anybody help?
Also,, does anyone know of any non-literary parallel texts in
English-Bahasa Malaysia-Mandarin and where to obtain it.

 Please reply to my personal email address at:

Message 3: Lexical Innovations

Date: Mon, 20 Nov 1995 08:53:45 Lexical Innovations
From: MIchal Ephratt <RHLH702UVM.HAIFA.AC.IL>
Subject: Lexical Innovations

Dear Netters,
 I am looking now into lexical innovations of a Hebrew scholar.
 In order to formulate a grammar of his innovation, I must first be able
 to discriminate among the innovation that he uses in his publications,
 between those coined by him and the rest.
 I am looking for any theoretical or empirical, linguistic or statistical
 attempts to resolve this issue of attributing authorship for "coinage"
 of lexical innovations.
 Any hints are most welcome, Thanks, MIchal.

Message 4: Primitive Concepts

Date: Tue, 21 Nov 1995 08:52:00 Primitive Concepts
From: Liu Chang Qing <lcqs1000e.dcs.tsinghua.edu.cn>
Subject: Primitive Concepts


I am a Ph.D. student of computer science. My work concerns analysis
and clarification of some primitive concepts, such as "pain",
"pleasure", "beauty", "desire", "action tendency", "good",
"satisfaction", "reward", "time", "existence", etc.; and involves
formulation of accounts of some psychological phenomena as well. The
view underlying my approach is that concepts, in particular primitive
concepts, are constructed out of the regularities of observable
behavior. I regretly find that there are so few scholars concentrating
on this kind of subject; presumably, no such an area exists. I am posting
this message in order to find colleagues. If anyone can offer sources
or references in this field, I would appreciate hearing from you.
