Message 1: question on syllabic typologies

Subject: question on syllabic typologies

I am interested in syllabic typologies and sonority, and I was wondering
if someone could help me to find languages that have:
1) obstruent-nasal-vowel and obstruent-glide-vowel onsets
or
2) nasal-liquid-vowel and nasal-glide-vowel onsets
or
3) no glides and only simple onsets and obstruent-liquid-vowel onsets

Thank you,

Subject: On 'construction' and 'structure'

Hi, there!

I'm writing a paper on Structural Grammar and I've got this
question: Do the terms 'construction' and
'structure' mean the same thing in Structural Grammar? If
there is any real difference between those
terms, I would greatly appreciate your comments.

Please, send any information to: Argenis A. Zapata, Department
of Modern Languages, The
University of The Andes, Merida, Venezuela.

Hi, Colleagues,

A friend of mine is doing some research on translation and needs to
use the program `Spanish Assistant for Windows`, released by MicroTac
Software, Inc. She would greatly appreciate it if someone could tell
her the mailing address or e-mail address of MicroTac Software, Inc.,
in order to ask them for permission to use 'Spanish Assistant for
Windows' as one as her translation tools in her research.

Please, send information to Argenis A. Zapata, e-mail:
azapataciens.ula.ve.

Thanks.

Subject: General linguistics workshops or conferences

Hi, I'm new to the list and I've been wondering if you could recommend
any general linguistics workshops to me. I've been teaching
linguistics for 2 years now at Teacher Training College but I feel I
need a refreshment course or sth. of this sort to help me develope in
this field. I would also like to know more and understand better
computational linguistics. I dream of the possibility of PhD in
linguistics, preferably pragmatics or computational l. Thanks for any
suggestions
