Query:   Hi Folks,

I have received the following query from one of my students. I lack the knowledge to answer the question. If you have any answer or readings I could direct him to, I would appreciate it.
Elizabeth Winkler

Dr. Winkler,

Would you happen to know what computational linguists have to say on the Transmitter vs. Receiver Oriented language topic? For example, is there a structural difference between the two that is detectable by algorithm?

Also, how well do humans differentiate the two? How well do speakers of different languages do so?

Just wondering,
