Message 1: English discourse markers in Interlanguage

Date: Fri, 7 Feb 97 14:44:18 EDT
From: BETINA CASTANO <castanobalpha.montclair.edu>
Subject: English discourse markers in Interlanguage

I would appreciate if you could help me with information (or where to
get the information) on discourse markers in the interlanguage of
second language learners. I'm interested in markers such as 'you
know', 'I mean', 'so', 'and', 'or', 'but', and how second language
learners use them in conversation. My hypothesis is that second
language learners may use these markers more than native speakers, and
that they may also use them as conversation fillers (place holders).

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Betina Castano

Message 2: Native speaker-Slavic

Subject: Native speaker-Slavic

I am working on multiple questions in Slavic (and in Romanian as well)
and at the moment am interested in certain extraction facts in these
languages. The Slavic languages I am looking at are:

Russian
Ukrainian
Polish
Czech
Serbo-Croatian
Bulgarian

If anyone is a native speaker of one of the languages above, I would
very much appreciate if you could tell me how you would say the
questions below in your language:

(1) What do you think that John bought?

(2) For whom do you think that John bought a gift?

(3) Who do you think that __ bought a gift? (ungrammatical in English)

(4) Who do you think that John saw?

Thank you very much.

Message 3: LaTeX macros for Garland Press dissertations?

Subject: LaTeX macros for Garland Press dissertations?

Judy Klavans posted a similar question a couple years ago: does anyone
have or know of LaTeX .sty files for the Garland Press Outstanding
Dissertations in Linguistics series? I would be stunned if such a
thing did not exist.

Thanks in advance --

Message 4: Dyslexia

Subject: Dyslexia

I am new to this page. I am currently teaching dyslexic children in
the English language. But where I am (in Singapore), many children are
taking Chinese as a second language as well. They often find much
difficulty in Chinese spelling. Any ideas /methods to make their task
easier and more rewarding ?
