I'm just wondering if anyone can clear up a piece of missing trivia for me.
 In a famous 1980 article, Garth Evans discussed a particular type of
pronoun-antecedent relation which he called E-type. Forgetting the
theoretical issues involved (which I admit are a lot more profound) does
anyone know where in the world he got that name? Is it short for
Evans-type? Is it from a previous reference that has otherwise been lost
(at least to me)? Reply to me, and I can post the solution if there is
one.

Subject: Reverse Dictionaries

Dear LINGUIST listers:
I have an opportunity to go to Slovenia this summer to help with
a reverse dictionary project.
I would be interested in any information about current or past
computerized reverse dictionaries. Any information on software (PD
or commercial) would be worthwhile.
I will endeavor to collect and collate the info and then post a summary.

Message 3: query: synthetic compounds

Date: Tue, 4 Apr 1995 20:49:07 -query: synthetic compounds
From: heather marie anderson <hmandersindiana.edu>
Subject: query: synthetic compounds

Content-Length: 992

 I am looking for information on synthetic compounds like the
English "truck driver" and the French "essuie-glace" where one element of the
compound is a verbal and the other element is interpreted as its object.
I am trying to find out if there is any connection between the ordering of
the elements in these compounds and the ordering of the elements in a VP.
 I already have information on how these compounds are formed and used
in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Igbo, and Jacaltec, but have
been unable, despite hours in the library, to find information on other
languages.
 I am hoping that some of you out there might know of some sources
out there I have missed. I read well in English and French, and can
manage in Russian.
 Thank you for your help. I will post a summary if I get enough
replies.
 I can be reached by e-mail at "hmandersindiana.edu" or by
regular mail at

Message 4: Query: Curriculum for German as a Second Language

From: Nicole Schrickel <nschrickfub46.zedat.fu-berlin.de>
Subject: Query: Curriculum for German as a Second Language

A friend of mine is desperately seeking a curriculum for German as a
Second Language for all levels. He is about to create such a curriculum
himself and would like to get some ideas for this project. He is a
teacher for German as a Second Language at a private language school in
Berlin/ Germany and his search wasn't very successful so far. It seems
that other language schools are either reluctant to pass on information
about their curricula or they don't seem to have any. If you have an idea
how to get the information he needs, please contact the following address
or send me an e-mail message:

THANKS!
