Message 1: Q: 'this' and 'that'

Date: Fri, 02 Jun 1995 05:56:20 Q: 'this' and 'that'
From: Kazuto MATSUMURA <kmatsumtansei.cc.u-tokyo.ac.jp>
Subject: Q: 'this' and 'that'

Dear LINGUISTs:

Some present-day 'European' languages have only one set of simple
demonstratives and the opposition of <this> vs. <that> is expressed
by the help of <here> and <there>:

 French ceci 'this' ce livre-ci 'this book'
 cela 'that' ce livre-l`a 'that book'

 Swedish det ha"r 'this' den ha"r bilen 'this car'
 det da"r 'that' den da"r bilen 'that car'

 Estonian see siin 'this' see maja siin 'this house'
 see seal 'that' see maja seal 'that house'

My Sweidish-German dictionary (Stora tyska ordboken) gives <der hier>
and <der da> as colloquial (familia"r, umgangssprachlich) German forms
which conrrespond to <den ha"r> and <den da"r>, respectively.

How common is a demonstrative system like this?

Incidentally, Japanese has a rather sophisticated three-way distinction
here:

 kono hoN 'this book (you see here)'
 sono hoN 'that book (you see there), the book (under discussion)'
 ano hoN 'that book (you see over there)'

So I'm afraid I will have to convince my students that the Japanese
are extravagant even in the way of using demonstratives.

From: Mr. Martin Zammit <mzamrelay.iunet.it>
Subject: Analysis of rap data

Dear linguists,
Some time ago, there was a message posted to the list about the linguistic
analysis of data from rap music lyrics. Would anyone pursuing this line please
get in touch with Dr. Alexandra Vella, University of Malta, on:
 avellaunimt.mt
Thank you very much.

Subject: RE: 6.746, Confs: TWLT9 - Updated Announcement

 A colleague of mine - Jeff Day - who is not a subscriber would like to
hear from anyone who knows about keyword generation and use.

Some questions to which he'd like answers are:
Are there any studies of consistency in keyword generation?
Are there any studies of psycholinguistic factors in keyword generation?
Are there any studies of the value of restricted keyword lists?
Are there any studies showing the utility of keywords in document retrieval?

Replies to Jeff, please, JXDcs.bham.ac.uk

Thanks

Message 4: Machine Translation: Looking for Proceedings of TMI

From: Uwe Reinke <sl16wwurrz.uni-sb.de>
Subject: Machine Translation: Looking for Proceedings of TMI

I am looking for an article by S. Nirenburg ("Two Approaches to Matching
in Example-based Machine Translation", that was published in the
"Proceedings of TMI-93". Could anybody in the "MT community" tell me
what TMI stands for and perhaps where to get hold of a copy of the
proceedings?

Thanks in advance for any answer.

Uwe
