Message 2: Query: connectionist/computational treatment of tone languages

Subject: Query: connectionist/computational treatment of tone languages

	I'm about to start work on a neural network simulation of
various phenomena in African tonal languages that have been attributed
to tone spread and tonal stability. I've looked in the recent Science
Citation and Social Science Citation indices, and also in the online
archives of the Linguist List and the CogSci List, without finding
such a treatment. Is anyone working on this, or on any computer
modeling of tone systems?

	Please reply to the address below. I'll summarize responses
to the list.

Message 3: Gullah/Black English

Subject: Gullah/Black English

I posted a query a while ago about the use of real as an emphasizer
especially in coastal US. Unfortunately, I have not reached any
conclusions so far since not many people answered. One who did, M.Casco,
suggested that I should "explore the possibility of the use of such
specifier due to perhaps Gullah influence or to some decreolized version of
Black English"

Any comments on this?

Thanks in advance,
