Message 1: Corpus analysis resources for Spanish

Subject: Corpus analysis resources for Spanish

	Dear colleagues:

	The Computational Linguistics Department of the Instituto de
Lexicograf'ia of the Real Academia Espa'nola has recently undertaken a
search of various corpus analysis resources from simple tokenizers to
lemmatizers, specifically developed for Spanish, or, at least,
language independent. We are mostly interested in shareware resources,
but will also thank any information about commercially available ones.

	The modules we are interested in are:

	1) Tokenizers: capable of dealing with clitization,
preposition-article contraction, multiword units and so on.

	2) Taggers, of any type (rule-based, stochastic..., language
dependent for Spanish, or language independent).

	3) Lemmatizers.

	4) Lexica, MRD/MTD, or any collection of spanish words, and
also any kind of utilities for the creation and maintenance of lexica.

	Any submodule or valuable material to complete any of the
previous modules will also be welcome.

	Please send responses directly to

	We will post a summary. Thank you in advance.

Subject: Compounding in English

Would someone please refresh my memory? I need a couple good articles
on compounding in English, particularly as relates to stress. I have
these articles somewhere in the 100+ boxes in my attic (from over 10
years ago) but can't remember the references. Also, if anyone has
on-line copies that would be even more appreciated. Thanks! -Amy

Subject: edith wharton on tapes/records

I am working on the use of paralinguistic features of speech in
literature and would like to know if there are any tapes/records of
Edith Wharton's books (novels, novellas, short-stories) read by the
author. Nothing seems to be available in shops but some of you might
be aware of a library where such material is available. Thanks in
