Message 1: "QUERY: PHRASE-TAGGING SOFTWARE

From: gen11 <gen11rz.uni-kiel.d400.de>
Subject: "QUERY: PHRASE-TAGGING SOFTWARE

Dear Linguists,
for research on constituent order I look for a software capable of parsing
sentences (format: ASCII text) on the level of phrases (i.e. VP, NP, AP, etc.).
In case you've encountered or heard about such a software, please send
information who to get hold of this software.
Additional question: Does anyone know, what happened to a program called
"ETC"/"WordCruncher" (Brigham Young, UT). I have the 1988 version and I'd
like to know whether there were further versions of the program. I couldn't
reach anyone from Germany, though.
Please reply directly to me, i.e. to gen11rz.uni-kiel.d400.de
Best wishes,
Bertram Pries.

Message 2: A couple of questions

Date: Tue, 17 Jan 1995 19:12:58 A couple of questions
From: Gabriel Amores <gabyfing.us.es>
Subject: A couple of questions


1. I obtained the e-mail address of Donna Jo Napoli thru the NAMESERVER
 (napolicampus.swarthmore.edu), but it bounced on me. Could someone
 tell me whether the address is right or wrong?

2. Could someone point me to relevant literature on correlative
constructions in English?

Thanks, reply to gabyfing.us.es

Message 3: kimmo help request

From: Robin Belvin <robinlsi.com>
Subject: kimmo help request

Greetings,
 we are in need of Kimmo rule sets and lexicons for Spanish, Russian, and
Arabic, or typologically similar languages, such as Italian, Portuguese,
Polish, Finnish, German, Hebrew, etc.. Although we have some in-house
expertise, we are hoping to find some rule sets for these languages
(either relatively low-cost commercial, or public domain), so that we
don't have to start from scratch. Thus, we would be interested even
in work in progress that we could build from. Thanks very much.

Subject: TV show on linguistics (Nova?)

I am trying to find the title and distributor of the two (three?)
shows on linguistics (were they on Nova?) that were shown at
the LSA meeting in 1994, and in which Pinker, Gleitman, etc. appear?
