Subject: Need word lists

Hi!

 I have a program that generates bizarre poetry with an
accompanying file of words. I am looking for word lists out on the
net. Lists of nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, etc.

 Also, if you know of any word lists by topic: computer, science,
drama, art, agric-sci, plz let me know where these are on the Net.

 Thanks!

 Gloria McMillan

Does anyone have a term for the experience of looking at a printed
word long enough or saying it out loud enough times so that it loses
all semantic associations and becomes an absurd sequence of letters or
sound? Either an accepted term or a more personal working term will
do. Respond to me directly and I'll summarize to the list.

Thanks,

Message 4: On line versions of newspapers

Subject: On line versions of newspapers

Dear readers of the Linguist list,

As we are planning a research project which is going to address itself
to the phenomenon of on line versions of newspapers and magazines
(from a linguistic, semiotic and media-studies point of view, but also
from a psychological and information-technological perspective), we
would like to know whether there are any colleagues out there who deal
with a similar subject. We are in the know about some people and some
projects, but we suspect there must be more people who share an
interest in this highly topical issue, however don't know of one
another's existence and engagement in the matter. We would be only too
pleased to make contact with those people, i.e. with ... you!
