Subject: Request for information on extraction of content from email
Hello,

I am researching the automatic extraction of pragmatic and linguistic
content of emails. I would appreciate it if anybody knows of any
related work in this area.

Thanks,

Yours sincerely

Subject: ollie, ollie, oxen free

I am writing on behalf of an english instructor at our college. He is
interested in knowing the origin and/or meaning of the phrase "ollie,
ollie, oxen free" (or one of the variations.) We discovered your list
using Alta Vista to search "children's games" on the web. We have
exhausted the sources available in our library and would appreciate
any information you may have. Thank you, in advance, for your help.

Message 3: Q: refs for spoken lang in caricatures

Subject: Q: refs for spoken lang in caricatures

I have a request from a faculty member here in Goettingen who is not
subscribed to the list. He is seeking any references for research
dealing with the written representation of spoken language in
caricatures. I assume research on spoken language in comics or
cartoons also would be helpful and of interest. Please send any info
to me and I will post a summary to the list.

Many thanks,
Suzanne
