Message 1: Pragmatic Checking and Anaphor Resolution

From: Richard Cameron <U17819UICVM.CC.UIC.EDU>
Subject: Pragmatic Checking and Anaphor Resolution

In an article by Marslen-Wilson, Levy, and Tyler (1982) "Producing
interpretable discourse: The establishment and maintenance of reference"
they discuss the role of inference or "pragmatic checking" in the
process of anaphor resolution. Briefly, anaphoric resolution results from
checking the information predicated of the anaphor with the local or
preceding discourse and thereby inferring the intended referent. Could anyone
steer me in the direction of other research which pursues a similar line
of argument? Thank you very much. - Richard Cameron

Message 2: Typos in Fromkin and Rodman textbook

Date: Wed, 21 Jun 1995 16:28:56 Typos in Fromkin and Rodman textbook
From: robin queen <robinqccwf.cc.utexas.edu>
Subject: Typos in Fromkin and Rodman textbook

This is a query to find out if anyone has a list of the typos that are in
an early printing of the fifth edition to the Fromkin and Rodman textbook
"An Introduction to Language". I am using the text in an introductory
class. While my copy of the book is fine, many of the students bought
used versions that have a number of typos in the data sets. So, I was
hoping that someone had a list of those typos (or knew where I could get
one), so that I can tell the students who have those defective copies.
Please send any answers to the following address:
robinqccwf.cc.utexas.edu

Thanks
Robin Queen

I am looking for Ian Maddieson's e-mail address. Two of the lists I check
don't list it; when I send mail to the one address I did find
(idu0ioncsma.berkeley.edu), it gets bounced back.
