Message 1: Modified Newsgroup for Lexicographers

Subject: Modified Newsgroup for Lexicographers

A few months ago I sent a query whether there any news groups for
lexicographers. Since then I have learned of the existence of one: I
am quoting from an Email from Dr.Thierry Fontenelle a member of the
committee of Euralex.

<<The Web site hosted by the university of Stuttgart
(http://www2.ims.uni- already includes a fair
amount of pointers to useful tools, dictionaries, corpora, publishers,
sister organisations, etc. This site contains on-line information
which Euralex members can consult at any moment and usually find very
useful (how to become a member, the Euralex Newsletter, a bibliography
of phraseology, a calendar of Euralex-related events, pointers to
relevant journals such as IJL, address! es...). Besides this web
site, Euralex members can also use a mailing list which enables them
to inform their colleagues about a particular event or request
information about a given topic ( : note
that all the messages sent to this address are sent to all the
subscribers; information about (un)subscription can be found at the
following URL: http://www2.ims.uni- ). From September onwards, this
mailing list will be moderated by Dr Ulrich Heid, Euralex's Assistant
Secretary- Treasurer (from the University of Stuttgart).

... these two channels have been successfully operational for two
years now>>

I hope this helps.

Yours sincerely,

Timothy Jacob Gluckman
(freelance lexicographer, Cologne, Germany)

Message 3: PrinParam: A new list for Chomskyan Syntax

Subject: PrinParam: A new list for Chomskyan Syntax

This is to announce PrinParam, a new electronic list for discussions
in Chomskyan syntax.

PrinParam is a list for discussions of Chomskyan syntax and issues in
linguistics in the Principles and Parameters tradition. Messages are
welcome on any topic related to these issues and may be in the form of
squibs, queries, book reviews, conference announcements, and,
especially, ongoing, back-and-forth discussions of issues in Chomskyan
syntax. It is expected that many list members who are engaged in an
active reading of the works of Noam Chomsky and his leading colleagues
will approach the list with questions for clarification, and this is
highly encouraged.

Subscribe to PrinParam by pointing your browser to:


and follow the simple instructions.

Please share this information with interested colleagues and students.

Thank you.
