We have in our Institute loaded the early text of the Pali langauge
and would need to know some more about SGML

Please help us with a few sites from where we could download some more
info.

Message 3: Question: Computers and Language Testing

Subject: Question: Computers and Language Testing

My colleague and I are working on a research project involving
computer-mediated testing of oral production in a foreign language. We
have found that up to now most work in computer- adaptive testing has
concerned the areas of grammar and writing and reading skills. We
would be most grateful to hear from anyone doing research involving
computers and the testing of oral skills. We would also appreciate
any relevant references since our bibliography on this particular
aspect of CAT is quite limited. We would gladly post a summary of our
responses. Thanking you in advance,

I'm a professor at the University of Valladolid, and I'm writing my
Doctoral Dissertation on metaphor translation. Before being able to
complete my database, I need more bibliography on text types, if
possible applied to tranlation. I only know the classics -Reiss,
Beaugrande, and a few more. Can somebody help me? Thanks in
advance!!!!
