Subject: Request

One of the PhD students at the University of Queensland, David
Dargie, is researching authorship in Sanskrit documents in the
period 500-800AD.

Does anyone know of:

1. an OCR (hardware or software) for Devanagari
2. machine readable corpora from this period, especially
 for Sankara
3. concordance and quantitative data for Sanskrit

Many thanks,

Dear Linguists,
I am planning an expedition to some minor endangered finno-ugric
language in the northern part of Russia. If anybody knows of any grant
or other financial support program which can help financing this
enterprise, please contact me.
Sincerely yours,
Igor Shoshitaishvili

Message 3: Irish slit-T

Date: Tue, 28 Mar 1995 11:18:31 Irish slit-T
From: <MJ.Ballulst.ac.uk>
Subject: Irish slit-T

I am interested in the variety of ways that authors have suggested to
transcribe the Irish slit-T (normallt described as a voiceless alveolar
slit/non-grooved fricative).

I would be grateful for any references to previous piublications employing
a transcription for this sound, or for any thoughts on ythe best way
of symbolizing it.
