Message 1: Q? stop systems

Date: Tue, 04 Jul 1995 11:22:03 Q? stop systems
From: Vincent DeCaen <decaenepas.utoronto.ca>
Subject: Q? stop systems

in working with dead languages, it would help my work if I had some
bibliography on stop systems and their markedness relations. I'm
interested especially in the properties of binary contrasts such as
[t] vs [tt] and [t] vs [th], ie, aspirated as in Chinese etc. Which of
the pairs corresponds to members of a voiced opposition [t] vs [d]???

Subject: query

We are a private company based in Barcelona currently developing and
testing the Spanish-English pair of languages of the METAL Machine
Translation System. We have already reached the test/debug phase of
the project, for which we have a peremptory need for Spanish
computerised texts.

It would be extremely helpful if someone out there could inform us on
free-access corpora of Spanish that could be consulted via internet.
Up to present, we have managed to collect a corpus of about 15000
sentences of various lengths and on various topics, but we consider
that we would need at least 40000.

May we ask you to send your suggestions directly to us. Our adress is

 albertincyta.es

Once we have collected a number of answers, we will send a summary to
the list.

Thanks in advance.

 Could somebody please tell me how Sri Lanka is written and
pronounced in Spanish? Is the pronunciation uniform across Latin America?

Message 4: chinese characters prgm

From: <schonebuni-muenster.de>
Subject: chinese characters prgm

Dear Linguist subscribers,

does anybody know of a program or supplementary program for chinese
characters that runs with DOS, probably together with MS WORD 5.5, and is
available as shareware? It should be preferably designed for a HP Deskjet
Printer.
Any help, hints, tips are welcome. As a good tradition I will post a
summary.
Thanks in advance!
