Message 1: An interactive syntax tutor on the World Wide Web

Subject: An interactive syntax tutor on the World Wide Web

Dear linguists,

Chris Dalton and I have written an interactive syntax tutor, intended
to help first year linguistics students practice writing phrase
structure grammars. The application is written in Java and is run from
a WWW browser (apart from the browser, which must be java-supporting -
e.g. Netscape 2 - there is no need to install anything locally). The
URL for the application is:

 http://www.linguistics.bangor.ac.uk/java/lt/LingTutor.html

The application works as follows: you enter a sentence to analyse,
then label each word with a syntactic category and write a set of
phrase structure rules. When the selections have been made, the
program shows the parse tree(s) generated by the grammar or states
that no analysis can be found.

A tech report which describes the application is available through
anonymous ftp at ftp.bangor.ac.uk:pub/el/lingtutor.ps.{gz,Z} or
directly from the Linguistics WWW server.

Subject: Found Hamp article
Thanks to many many respondents, who gave me the correct citation to
Eric Hamp's paper "Occam's Razor and Explanation in Etymology." The
correct citation, which I have verified, is

	Papers from the 8th Regional Meeting of the Chicago Linguistic
		Society 8 (1972), pp. 470-472. 

Thanks again to all who responded.
