Message 1: Spanish Wh-islands

Subject: Spanish Wh-islands

Dear linguists,

 I have a query regarding Spanish wh-islands which I hope
some native speakers of Spanish can help me with.

 Is there any contrast in acceptability with respect to
wh-island effects between (1) and (2)? In (1), the verb
"know/remember" is used while in (2), the verb "wonder"
is used:

(1) a. Qu� libro sabes/recuerdas [por qu� Luis compr�]?
 Which book do you know/remember [why Luis bought]?
 b. Qu� diccionario sabes/recuerdas [cu�ndo Luis compr�]?
 Which dictionary do you know/remember [when Luis
 bought]?
(2) a. Qu� libro te preguntas [(que) por qu� Luis compr�]?
 Which book do you wonder [why Luis bought]?
 b. Qu� diccionario te preguntas [(que) cu�ndo Luis
 compr�]?
 Which dictionary do you wonder [when Luis
 bought]?

Thanks a lot. I will be glad to post a summary if
there are enough responses.

Message 2: Multi-modal annotation schemes

Subject: Multi-modal annotation schemes

Dear Linguists,

I am currently doing a survey of existing annotation schemes for
multimodality. Is anybody of you aware of annotation schemes that
correlate (aspects of) non-verbal behaviour (lip movement, body
posture, gaze, etc.) with speech? I will summarize all responses.

Thanks,
