Subject: Grammar Lab Software

I'm in the process of preparing to teach a class in mathematical
linguistics and would like to use software to do so. Through the
world-wide-web linguistics library, I found four Macintosh grammar
labs, which were developed at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. I
was wondering if anyone on this list has ever used these applications
for teaching and, if so, could tell me about any experience with them.

Thank you,

Message 2: Tonal Correlations with Parts of Speech

Subject: Tonal Correlations with Parts of Speech

Dear Sinologists:

I am wondering if anyone has ever attempted to correlate tones and
speech parts in Chinese.

I have the offhand impression that the falling tone occurs
inordinately often with verbs with a simple non-diphthongal vocalic
nucleus.

Am I wrong?

Pat

Dear all recipients,

I would be very grateful to you all if you could let me know about any
test, set of questions, questionnaire related to cultural awareness or
competence.
Any ideas or comments about how to design a test on foreign language
learners' cultural competence will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in
anticipation for your cooperation. 
Yours sincerely,

A.latif
