Message 2: spoken English grammar

Subject: spoken English grammar

Dear fellow researcher,

If you get multiple copies of this message, I apologize.

I am contacting you as someone who may have an interest in the SUSANNE
analytic scheme and Corpus. You might know SUSANNE as an analysed
electronic corpus of English, and/or you might know it through the
book ENGLISH FOR THE COMPUTER (Oxford University Press, 1995).

I have just been offered funds to extend this work to the domain of
spoken English. As before, I plan to create analysed corpus resources
which will be made as freely available as possible to the research
community. This means that I would like to plan the work in advance
to make it as useful as I can to a broad cross-section of researchers.

There is a Web page describing the new Spoken SUSANNE project and
identifying various issues that remain fluid at this stage. If this
work interests you, I should be extremely grateful if you would care
to point your Web browser at

and e-mail me any reactions you care to make to the points discussed

Many thanks in advance!

Geoffrey Sampson, University of Sussex

Subject: Research Information
I have been put in contact with you by Mr. Alex monaghan of DCU in
Ireland. I was hoping that you may be able to put me in contact with
some people in the area of learning disorders / aphasia. Would you
have any information of any other web sites dealing with the same area
or any computational studies carried out in the are of learning
disorders/ aphasia? I would be greatly appreciative if you could be
of any help to me.

Ciaran Murphy
or (after 12th March).
