Dear fellow list members,
 I'm inquiring for a friend who is not on the internet about
PhD programs in neurolinguistics, particlarly ones that relate
neurolinguistics to language acquisition (both first and second). My
friend is having trouble identifying schools with such programs. Any
suggestions? If you have any information I could pass on to her,
please respond to me at the folowing address:

Thank you in advance.

Subject: Query

Dear LINGUIST Readers:

A New Zealand student, who is not on e-mail, would like to find out if
there is an electronic Portuguese dictionary that can be used in
conjunction with Claris Works. She would be interested both in a
monolingual Portuguese dictionary as well as a bilingual one, i.e.
Portuguese-English and English-Portuguese.

Any information on the above would be greatly appreciated.I will relay all
information to the interested party.

Thank you very much.

Message 3: Dictionaries, corpora & typesetting

From: Christopher Brewster <kiffermath.upatras.gr>
Subject: Dictionaries, corpora & typesetting

Dear LINGUIST,

I would be grateful for help with the following questions:
1. What software systems are available for corpora analysis and management
 either from commercial or non-commercial sources that can handle medium
 to large corpora (20 m words plus)?.
2. What is the most advisable format for holding dictionary databases?
 What are colleagues doing in this respect? Are they using commercial
 software, custom written systems or what?
3. How do such databases feed into typesetting, or preferable how do they
 communicate with DTP systems?

Ideally I would like advice on how to create a complete dictionary development
environment.

I am aware of the efforts of COBUILD. I have already posted this request on
the CORPORA list, so I appologise to some subscribers.

Thank you.

Subject: NYT Education Supplement


Did anyone catch the blurb on Pg 9 of the Education Life supplement of
this weeks's NYT? There is a small article on declining enrollments in
Russian studies departments. It cites a problem with "Russia's current
image" being one of "uncertainty." Hmmm...
