Message 1: Q: Broca's aphasia and ASL

Date: Tue, 21 Nov 1995 16:16:25 Q: Broca's aphasia and ASL
From: Stanley Dubinsky <DUBINSKUNIVSCVM.CSD.SCAROLINA.EDU>
Subject: Q: Broca's aphasia and ASL

A student in my introduction to linguistics course asked a question
today that I could not answer, but would like to be able to.
She wanted to know how Broca's aphasia affects the language of signing
adults. I assume that this aphasia does affect the syntax of ASL,
however I was not sure whether it affects articulation. I.e., does
Broca's area have the same control over manual articulation of ASL
as it does over oral articulation of spoken language, and does damage
to this area result in analogous articulatory difficulty for a
signing patient (e.g. difficulty in producing complex ASL gestures,
where there is no corresponding deficit in voluntary control of
the same muscles).
Thanks,
Stan Dubinsky

 Does anyone know if there are any on-going socio-linguistic
surveys of Hiberno-English (particularly Dublin area) in progress, or any
that are complete, but as yet unpublished? Even better, if you're in a
university,(aren't we all?) which is outside Ireland or Britain, and you
know of any unpublished dissertations/theses on this subject gathering
dust, could you send me the bibliographical details? Many thanks!
 Not really expecting any replies...

Message 3: Q: POS tagging of spoken language transcriptions

Date: Wed, 22 Nov 1995 08:51:01 Q: POS tagging of spoken language transcriptions
From: Joakim Nivre <joakimling.gu.se>
Subject: Q: POS tagging of spoken language transcriptions


I am interested in any work (published or unpublished) on
part-of-speech tagging of spoken language transcriptions.
I am especially interested in the problems of adapting
taggers developed for written language to the demands of
(transcribed) spoken language. The only thing I have found
so far is a brief mention of these problems in a description
(on the Web) of the annotation of the British National Corpus
(by Roger Garside). I will be grateful for any information
pertaining to this area.

Best regards,

I am sending this message on behalf of one of my doctoral students
comparing English and Arabic complement sentences. Does anyone
know of references to Arabic complement constructions (theses or books)?
Please reply directly to me , and I will summarize the responses
later.
Thank you for your cooperation

Does anyone have sufficient experience with ILS signal processing package
do know how to write code for a batch job to extract fundamental frequency?
