Subject: Windows software for prosodic transcription

Dear fellow linguists,

Does anyone know of Windows software for prosodic transcription of audio
recorded material, i.e. software that has a spectogram function which can
assist in determining pitch movement in speech?

I would be very grateful if anyone can help me with this. I will of course
post a summary of the responses.

Kind regards,
Kristine Hasund

I am translating a German book (1805) that uses Greek names for trees and
other plants. Three items I cannot trace are:

tinos
zizyphos
chirandos

These are Mediterranean trees or shrubs. Can anyone help with identifying
these species?

Message 3: phonemic lexical stress

Subject: phonemic lexical stress

Hi,

I would like to know if there is any language(s) that makes use of
phonemic lexical stress extensively. In English there are very few pairs
of words that contrast only in lexical stress but does not involve any
segmental change (such as FORbear vs. forBEAR, from A. Cutler, 1986). I
wonder if any language exploits phonemic lexical stress as extensively
as phonemic tone is used in lexical tone languages. If there exists such
a language, is there any research on the role of lexical stress in
auditory word recognition in this language?

Thank you.

Subject: Quebec English

Hi everyone,

I've got some research going on over
Quebec English, mainly from a lexical 
point of view, with particular emphasis
on so-called gallicisms.
I would greatly appreciate whatever type 
of information you might have both on the
topic in general and more specifically 
on the above.
