Subject: Principles and Parameters Theory / Spanish Language

I need information on the parameters for Spanish within the case theory.

I would also be grateful for any literature recommendations regarding 
subcategorizations of spanish prepositions within the framework of the 
PPT.

Thank you.

Message 2: LaTeX Cyrillic and IPA at the same time

From: Potter, T. LTC DFL <gt1704exmail.usma.army.mil>
Subject: LaTeX Cyrillic and IPA at the same time

Members of the list,

Could you please respond directly to me or to my colleague, Mr. John
Morgan, for whom I am posting this message? Referral to another list or
resource would also be of great help. 

Text of question follows: "I am using LaTeX to write a pronouncing
dictionary for Russian. Is it possible to use the Cyrillic OT2 package
and the phonetic package simultaneously? If not, can anyone suggest a
way to write both Cyrillic and IPA symbols in a single LaTeX document?"

Thank you in advance for your help and advice.
Terry Potter

Message 3: 'speech gene' paper

Date: Mon, 23 Feb 1998 09:19:47 -0600 (CST)
From: Lynn Alan Eubank <eubankunt.edu>
Subject: 'speech gene' paper

A recent issue of the -Chronicle of Higher Education- provides a very
brief description of research by Anthony Monaco and colleagues that
apparently isolates a 'speech gene' in the specific region of chromosome
seven. The articlette mentions that the original research is in -Nature
Genetics-, but provides no exact citation. Alas, my university does not
take -Nature Genetics- (!#&%#%*&*(#!~!), and I can't order a copy of the
paper unless I have the full citation info ($%#^&(&^%$#). Could somebody
help out this poor soul?
thanks,

Message 4: Paul Deane's Dissertation "Semantic Theory & the Problem of Polysemy"

From: Petho Gergely <pethogturan.math.klte.hu>
Subject: Paul Deane's Dissertation "Semantic Theory & the Problem of Polysemy"

I am looking for a working e-mail address of Mr. Paul Deane. All the
addresses I have found are not operational and I haven't found anyone
yet who could help me find him. I would be also very grateful for any
information on how I could get a copy of Mr. Deane's
Ph.D. Dissertation "Semantic theory and the problem of polysemy".
Thank you for any replies,

Gergely Petho
