Subject: Internet and cable TV in Argentina

Dear colleagues, 

I am working with Dr. Ortiz (in the areas of Linguistics (Discourse
Analysis) and Political Sciences) on a research project about Internet
and cable TV in the context of globalization in our country,
Argentina. We would like to have your opinion, suggestions, and
comments about this topic. We will present our outcome at APSA
(American Political Sciences Asociation). Thanks in advance.

Message 2: looking for references: aktionsart judgements

From: James Thomas <James.Thomascl.cam.ac.uk>
Subject: looking for references: aktionsart judgements

I'm looking for pointers to experimental research in the area of
aktionsart (I don't want to get into a terminology discussion, the
kind of thing I'm talking about are the Vendler eventuality classes:
states, activities, achievements and accomplishments or whatever).

I'm hoping to find references to research where subjects have been
asked to classify sentences/verb phrases/verbs; not necessarily by
naming the eventuality type, but perhaps by indicating acceptability
of sentences like:

 John played football in ten minutes
 John played football for ten minutes

If I get a decent response, I'll summarise for the list,

thanks,
James

Message 3: Lists Suitable for TESL Job Ad

Subject: Lists Suitable for TESL Job Ad
Dear LINGUIST members:

I have been asked by individuals at a university in the Kyushu region
of Japan to assist in a search for an entry-level English professor.
I am told that it is preferable for applicants to have done graduate
work in teaching English as a second language. When the time comes to
formally advertise the openning I plan to do so on this list but would
also like to advertise on other lists that are used by persons
interested in teaching English as a second language. I would greatly
appreciate receiving suggestions regarding lists that would be
appropriate for such an advertisement. Please respond directly by
e-mail. Thank you.

Yours truly,
