I am interested in the study of clitic pronouns in Romance languages,
and I'd appreciate if somedody could give me some references on extractability
and restructuring of clitic pronouns in Spanish.
Thank you very much in advance.
Looking forward to hearing from you,

Subject: Teaching and computer technologies
Dear LINGUISTS,
I am completing at this moment, as a member of a research group, an 
exhaustive survey of the literature on language teaching and computer
 technologies - precisely, hypertext, internet, and computer networks. 
I would like to know about the current in preparation works on these 
topics. Pointers to these will be greatly appreciated, and so will be 
indications of manuscripts, e-publications, or even of recent workshop 
and conferences, etc.. Please reply directly to me and I will post a summary
if there's sufficient interest. Thanks in advance!

Message 3: Comparative fieldwork with colonial dialects

Date: Mon, 05 Feb 1996 19:48:07 CST
From: jsalmonsfacstaff.wisc.edu <jsalmonsfacstaff.wisc.edu>
Subject: Comparative fieldwork with colonial dialects
Two people not on this list are looking for examples of comparative
fieldwork with any colonial variety of some language AND the base
varieties from which the colonial variety grew. For example, are
there studies of Swabian dialects in Australia with comparative data
from the revelant part of Germany collected by the same person? We've
come across surprisingly few studies of this type. Instead, in the
body of work we are most familiar with, discussions treating dialect
origins of colonial varieties overwhelmingly compare their colonial
fieldwork with published dialect literature rather than their own
work with contemporary base varieties.

If there's sufficient interest and/or response, we will post a summary
to the list. Thanks,

Joe Salmons

Subject: Arabic

I'd like to ask if anybody could help me so as to develope my research
which deals with the morphological and syntactical analysis of Nominal Phrase
for Arabic Processing. The aim of my research is to write a grammar for the
Nominal Phrase that would be useful especially for arabic automatic indexing.
thanks.
