Message 1: Q. Syntactic Parser

From: <ghazaliTunisia.EU.net>
Subject: Q. Syntactic Parser

We are a research Institute specialized in Arabic computing .
We are currently working on English/Arabic computer-assisted translation.
Our ATN -based parser of English is sort of getting complicated. We would
like to know if elaborate parsers of English that can be used for our
purposes
 exist , and if we can obtain one, so that we will concentrate on the
generation
of Arabic structure. (If not freeware, please indicate price).
You may reply to me, or preferably to Lamia Labed who is in charge of the
project at Lamiaspeech.rsinet.tn
Thank you for your cooperation.

Subject: references to force dynamics

Can anyone help me with references on the subject force dynamics in
language, as it is described in Talmy (1985). I know that Jackendoff (1990)
and Pinker (1989) refers to it in their analyses of verb semantics,

Jackendoff, R. (1990). Semantic structures. MIT Press.

Pinker, S. (1989). Learnability and cognition. MIT Press.

Talmy, L. (1985). Force dynamics in language and thought. W.h. Eilfort,

meeting of the Chicago Linguistic Society. Chicago:Department of
linguistics, University of Chicago.
