Linguistic LingField(s):  Language Acquisition

Query:   dear colleagues,
this is an urgent call for help:
our research-group at the university of bremen is
currently working on a large-scale typological project.
our main aim is to find out about the systematic relation-
ship that holds between comitatives and instrumentals in
the languages of the world. for that purpose, we have
prepared a number of questionnaires. the first of these
questionnaires is ready for distribution. therefore,
we'd like to know who of you all would like to participate
by translating 23 short sentences into his or her native
language or favourite object language. there are english,
french, german, russian, spanish, and turkish versions of
the questionnaire. chose the one you need and let us have
your snail-mail address so that we can send you a paper-
copy of the questionnaire. it goes without saying that
we will explicitly acknowledge your participation in
the planned publication!
of course, any other information on our topic or related
subjects is welcome as well.
thanks a lot and best wishes.
thomas stolz.

Christophe Parisse
Two-word stage in language acquisition

Dear Linguist-readers,

I am presently working on the subject of morpho-syntactic acquisition
in the two-word stage in french children. I haven't found many
references on the two-word stage more recent than 1980 (in any
language, french, english or other). If anybody knows about such
references they can send them to my e-mail address. I will happily
made a summary of the answers received.

Thanks for your help

Christophe Parisse.

Isabelle TELLIER
computational learning of natural language

As a researcher in computational linguistics, I am newly interested
in algorithms modelling natural language learning. This domain is
also usually referred to as ''grammar inference''.
I am looking for references on the subject, especially in a computational
point of view (i.e. not using neural networks).

Could you help me ? I will forward the result to anyone interested.
