Subject: Re: American-English in Australia

Hello ! I'm working on a thesis concerning attitudes toward America
and the use of American-English by Australia. I would be interested
in hearing from anyone who has researched this field or who knows of
recent research. I'm particularly interested in the methods used to
illicit or ascertain the use of target vocabulary (eg. pharmacist Vs
chemist, candy Vs lollies etc.)

If you can help, please email JMAR2MFS01.cc.monash.edu.au

An edited list of responses will be posted on the Linguist List

Thank you,

Message 2: Parsers for Russian

Subject: Parsers for Russian

This query was also posted to SEELANGS--apologies in advance for
redundancy.

I'm a doctoral candidate in Slavic linguistics at the University of
Washington. This summer, though, I'm interning at Educational Testing
Service in Princeton, NJ, where I'm working with the Natural Language
Initiative headed by Randy Kaplan.

As part of my summer project here, I wanted to look at parsers which
people may have built for Russian. Anyone know where I could find some to
look at, or know someone who would know?

Suggestions for reading on non-English language parsers are also welcome.

Thanks in advance for any information,

I'm about to computerize a sociolinguistic corpus of spoken French and
English. I would be grateful to anybody who could give me some
information about concording and text retrival softwares. I'm
using a Macintosh micro-computer. Thanks... Louise Charbonneau-Lloyd
