Message 1: Macintosh Compatible Software

Subject: Macintosh Compatible Software


Hi!
I'm looking for a software (affordable and preferably Macintosh compatible,
DOS would be alright, too) that searches words in different text files,
cuts out the found word(s) plus a context of +/- 3 lines, e.g., a n d
saves the whole passage in a special file.
The only comparable software I know is *Gofer 2.0*, but, unfortunately, it
suffers from some severe problems: for example, it is not compatible with
system 7.x (Mac), it saves the finds only as ASCII files ...
Who can help me?

Message 2: A question on Guttman (aka implicational) scalogram

Subject: A question on Guttman (aka implicational) scalogram


Hi,

I have been wondering if there has been any study on Guttman scaling (which is
also known as implicational scaling in a number of sub-branches of linguistics)
that looked at how likely it is, by sheer chance, to come up with a set of data
that is highly reproducible (i.e., the coefficient of reproducibility is over
.90) and also highly scalable (i.e., the Scalability Coefficient >> 0.60).
Despite its (past?) popularity in sociolinguistics and other areas there
doesn't seem to be any study that addressed this question, and the references I
looked at only mention those coefficients. 

I cross-posted a similar query to STAT-L as well, and my apologies to anyone
who had to see this posting more than once. 

Thanks in advance,

Message 3: Phonological features

I am posting this request on behalf of colleagues Anne Hesketh and 
Catherine Adams who are working on a clinical research project:

They wonder if anyone has experience of, or references on, the use 
of distinctive feature analysis to measure progress in children with 
phonological output problems?

I will of course post a summary to the list 

With thanks,

CG
