Message 1: Functional Phonology

Subject: Functional Phonology

 I am impressed with current developments in functional
linguistics, that is to say, functional grammar as practised in the
U.S.A.(Givon, Haiman...).However, I am not aware of phonology being
done in that spirit. Could anybody provide me with information on this
issue?

Subject: Postscript Files

As you may know there are many downloadable articles available on the
web. Most of these files are written with postscript and encapsulated
postscript language.
 I have tried to open these files with many famous graphic packages
like Corelldraw or powerpoint but the trial was unsuccessful. I would
be grateful if any one could tell how to open these types of files.

My best regards,

Subject: Making DAGs with a PC?


What's the easiest way to make DAGs with a PC?

I currently use WordPerfect 6.1 and CorelDraw 4 in a Windows 3.11
environment, but I would be happy to hear about any relevant programs
that work well with Windows 95.

I'll post a summary of any answers I get.

Thanks,

Joe Hilferty

Subject: Berman Article



A schoolmate of mine is now engaged in the research of translation.

He is now in want of copies of one book and one article: 

 Berman, Antoine. Les Tours de Babel: Essais sur la Traduction.
 Vanuti. "Translator's Invisibility" in Criticism 1986, vol.28

The latter author may have written a book under the same title. If so,
he also wants to have a copy of that. He will be very grateful if any
person or organization could be of any help. By the way, he will
surely be of reciprocal help, as he is beginning to accomplish in the
field. Just let me know if you want to send the copies so that I
could tell you his or my address or save your trouble in case several
people volunteer. Thank you in advance. Best regards.
