Message 1: Query: 2nd World Congress of African Linguistics

Date: Thu, 27 Apr 1995 10:57:10 Query: 2nd World Congress of African Linguistics
From: <FIONAKUHUB.CC.UKANS.EDU>
Subject: Query: 2nd World Congress of African Linguistics


A few weeks ago a call for proposals for the 2nd World Congress of African
Linguistics was posted on this list, and it was announced that the congress
would be held in Leipzig. Subsequently, a second message came through
saying that the choice of Leipzig had not been officially finalized, and
'that it was just one of several possible sites for the congress.

I am wondering if anyone could clarify the situation for me. Has Leipzig been
officially chosen as the site, or will the congress be held elsewhere? Or
is it still unknown?

A prompt answer is appreciated since I am leaving for Senegal on May 3rd
and would like to be able to disseminate the information to colleagues\
at the U of Dakar and the U of St.Louis, as well as sending information
by courier to Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger. The initial announcement
mentioned that there were possibilities of funding for African linguists
to attend the congress and I would like to make sure that linguists at
these institutions are aware of these possibilities with enough lead
time to prepare their applications.
Any information will be appreciated.
Thank you.

 Dear fellow list members,

 Thank you, irina Sekerina, CUNY Grad Center.

Message 3: REQUEST FOR HELP WITH MEDICAL TEXTDATA IN GERMAN

Date: Thu, 27 Apr 1995 15:55:19 REQUEST FOR HELP WITH MEDICAL TEXTDATA IN GERMAN
From: <AliceDccgate.dragonsys.com>
Subject: REQUEST FOR HELP WITH MEDICAL TEXTDATA IN GERMAN

HELLO:
Anyone who can offer some sensible advice regarding the search for
medical textdata in German is more than welcome to respond to this note.

My company is a leading developer of speech recognition technology for
computers. We are heading into the development cycle for a specialized
vocabulary:General Medical in German, and are therefore looking for
medical text in German available either on CD-ROM or any other
machine-readable form.

There seems to be a multitude of "international medical texts"
commercially available on CD-ROM, but very little in German.

I kindly ask anyone who has any advice, addresses, pointers or insights
into this kind of research to respond to:

or post your input  LINGUISt.

Thank you very much for your time and effort.

Sincerely,
AliceD

Message 4: need for reference

Date: Thu, 27 Apr 1995 19:28:19 need for reference
From: ( <penajaWKUVX1.WKU.EDU>
Subject: need for reference

Friends,
 I need to get as much information as possible with regards to
new laws, attitudes or positive changes that any sort of
administration is taking about foreign languages teaching, above all
Spanish, but certainly not only.
 For instance, very recently I read some news in a paper about
the many states in the USA that are thinking about starting foreign
language teaching in middle schools while expanding that in high
school. As you can imagine, I remember reading that just last week but
I cannot remember what paper or publication it was.
 In any case, any information or references you can give me
will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
JAPena
