Subject: European linguistics

 I would like help in finding out information on linguistics in Europe--
how the field is structured? what theoretical models are important? What
departments in universities have linguists ? etc. I'm not sure where to
go for this type of information--so pointers toward sources or personal
knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Message 2: open/closed word classes, etc.

Date: Sat, 18 Mar 95 16:31:31 CSopen/closed word classes, etc.
From: <C1737016UMSLVMA.UMSL.EDU>
Subject: open/closed word classes, etc.

Can anyone help with this question?
Many introductory (and some other) books on linguistics mention the open/
closed distinction for word classes and the lexical/grammatical meaning
distinction. None that I have seen, however, say anything about who invented
these distinctions, when, where, and why.
Does anyone have any information about the provenance of these distinctions?
Thanks.

From: Jane Simpson <jhsextro.ucc.su.OZ.AU>
Subject: QUERY: guide to software for linguistic analysis

Does anyone know of any wide-ranging guide to software for use in
linguistics, (covering, say, fieldwork, quantitative sociolinguistic
research, acoustic phonetics, managing electronic corpora, discourse
analysis, parsing...)? Such a guide (preferably electronic) would be
very useful as a reference for students.

I will summarise the results for the list.
