Subject: transcriptions

Hi!!
My name is Claudia Medina, and I am writing my MA thesis which is
about building a data base about handwritten notes, and run it with
a Markov Model.

I am looking for transcribed handwritten notes as well as
markup languages used for that kind of transcriptions. Do any of you
know about the availability of these type of information?

Thank you very much !

Claudia

From: ELIZABETH GILBOY RUBIO <EGILBOYpsi.ub.es>
Subject: Extraposed relative clauses

Dear linguist readers:

I have a question. Does anyone know any or recent forthcoming work on
extraposed relative clauses, in particular with reference to Spanish.

Thanks in advance

Message 4: Verbal humour

Date: Thu, 18 May 95 16:49:07 +0Verbal humour
From: <ahousenvnet3.vub.ac.be>
Subject: Verbal humour

Hello,

A student of mine wants to do a thesis on verbal humour from a
discourse/conversational analysis perspective, using both spontaneous
(English) data as well as film scripts (e.g. W. Allen's films).

She is not so much interested in the discourse genres of jokes or anecdotes
as in what it is that makes a particular utterance or turn in a
conversation witty, funny, etc. Admittedly, this is all very vague.
Therefore, any suggestions or pointers to relevant and recent literature
(e.g. on the semantics and pragmatics of verbal humour - other than V.
Raskin's 1985 monograph) would be greatly appreciated.
