Message 1: Q: teaching/learning packages

From: Rhys CS <CS.Rhysulst.ac.uk>
Subject: Q: teaching/learning packages


We are looking for information about software packages for
teaching/learning theoretical linguistics (especially but not just
syntax). If you have any experience of any packages, or have developed
one, please send me the information and I will summarise to the list.

Thanks in advance,

Message 2: Query: Hyrdrocephalic language patterns

Date: Thu, 16 May 1996 14:15:40 EDT
From: Randy Allen Harris <rahawatarts.uwaterloo.ca>
Subject: Query: Hyrdrocephalic language patterns
A student of mine with hydrocephalus says that she has some peculiar
language traits, particularly linked to acquisition. Talking with
other people who have hydrocephalus she has discovered that many of
them experienced similar acquisition patterns. Has there been any
work in this area (and, if so, what does it say)?

Is there any Macintosh software to help create bilingual dictionaries,
whether print or electronic, from databases? If not Macintosh, does
something exist for DOS or Windows?

Message 5: Lists

From: "J.L. Sancho, INSTITUTO DE LEXICOGRAFIA" <sanchocrea.rae.es>
Subject: Lists

I am a "just subscribed" subscriptor and I am looking for any other list
particularly concerned with Chomskyan linguistics (and related areas such
as (linguistic) logic, cognitive science (for linguistic purposes)...).
My concrete interests (to help you narrow your suggestions) are ellipsis,
anaphora resolution, strict/sloppy ambiguities and theoretical aspects
of linguistics (models, frameworks, their cognitive import...). Can
anyone give me a hint? Thanks.

Message 6: Subcategorisation of Dutch and German verbs

Date: Fri, 17 May 1996 11:10:00 -0000
From: Lynne Cahill <lynnecacogs.susx.ac.uk>
Subject: Subcategorisation of Dutch and German verbs

Does anyone know of a source of (machine readable) detailed information about
subcategorisation frames for Dutch and German verbs? I am looking for more
than simply transitive/intransitive, i.e. number and at least syntactic nature
of arguments. Ideally I would like the sort of information that is given for
English in COMLEX, but pointers to anything along these lines would be
gratefully received.
