Subject: Looking for a good intro. textbook

 Although I'm an archaeologist, I may be asked to teach an
introductory linguistics course next fall. The last linguistics class
that I took was Ted Stern's linguistics core course at UOregon in the
late 80s, so I'm a little out of the loop, especially textbooks.

 If you have any recommendations for textbooks that you'd like to
share, please drop me a line off-list. You'll have my eternal
gratitude, and you will have spared a bunch of students the agony of
fighting their way through a poor text.

I am looking for people/books who/which deal with the HCI, including
WIMP and partially-speech-driven interfaces, from the linguistic (esp.
psycholinguistic) perspective.

Message 3: basic vocabulary

Subject: basic vocabulary
Dear linguists,

I would appreciate any help in finding 'basic vocabulary' for German,
English, Japanese and Swedish. I define the term 'basic vocabulary'
pragmatically as a list of wordforms covering a high percentage (say
more than 95 percent) of wordforms occuring in a certain corpus. The
list should contain all wordforms occuring in the corpus that belong
to the 'closed wordclasses' or are 'function words' so I would not
like to take a dump frequency-based approach). Although I am primarily
interested in computerized data (wordlists, lexica, thesauri,
dictionaries) I am also happy to receive pointers to theoretical work.

Regards,
Christian Lieske
