I am looking for sites where to obtain information about
spanish corpora and parsing and tagging systems easily
adaptable to spanish.

Thank you very much in advance.

Message 2: Query: Future tense discourses

From: Birgit Hamp <hampheidelbg.ibm.com>
Subject: Query: Future tense discourses

Hi everybody,

I am looking for texts written in the German future tense (yes, I do
believe there is such a thing!). Could anybody help me out with references?
I want to compare the frequency of temporal adverbial anaphors in
future tense discourses to the frequency in past tense discourses. Thus, it
would be best to have novels, short stories etc. by the same autor in
both tenses.

Thank you!

(1) Somewhere there is a story of Chomsky, seasick and uncertain of
his future, coming with the idea of transformational grammar while
traveling aboard ship. I am wondering if anybody remembers where.

(2) Are there are any surveys or other statistics that show how
many linguists work within the different schools and also within
different areas (e.g., phonology vs. syntax, comparative vs.
theoretical, etc.).

I will post summaries.
