Message 1: Map Task

From: Yoshihiro Masuya <masuyamxb.meshnet.or.jp>
Subject: Map Task

Tue, 2 April, 1996.

I obtained MAP TASK from Human Communication Research Centre,
Edinburgh University and was told the waveforms are supplied with
NIST-compatible headers but that they did not know any product names
of the application(s) which handle the waveforms contained in MAP TASK
CD-Rom. Nor do any computer scientists of my university know what
applications exist.

I should be grateful if someone knows some commercially produced
application for Apple Macintosh and let me know it.

Yoshihiro Masuya.

Message 2: Qs: Classification of time expressions

Date: Tue, 02 Apr 1996 15:07:42 +0200
From: Patricia Maesfranckx <Patricia.Maesfranckxrug.ac.be>
Subject: Qs: Classification of time expressions
Hello!

I'm involved in a project on the implementation of vague lexical time
expressions in temporal data bases. I would like to know if there
exist any (linguistic) classifications/typologies of time expressions.
Just the distinctions point-interval, relational-situational,
bound-unbound are not enough for our purposes. So if you know of any
more detailed typologies, I would be very grateful if you let me know.
I will post a summary to the list.
