Message 1: Macconcordance

Subject: Macconcordance


Linguist Vol-3-345 contained a posting stating that the Macintosh
concordance program _Macconcordance_ is available by anonymous ftp from
sumex-aim.stanford.edu (in the directory info-mac/app). I searched
that directory last night and turned up no file macconcordance.hqx
(although conc170 is there as concordance.hqx). The abstracts do not
list it, either.

Is Macconcordance available at some other site? I would like to thank
everyone who has taken the time to let the rest of us know what is out
there in the archives.

Re: Gamma's Multi-language word processor

Before posting a review of the program here (which I will do in a few
weeks; less if the manufacturer responds quickly to several questions),
I would like to solicit comments from people using the package. Note
that I am speaking of MLS 4.0, and not 3.x.

Subject: Request for information


Dear Linguist Readers,

At Bilkent University Ankara, Turkiye, we are planning to start work
on computational linguistics on Turkish. We would like to hear about
the experience of researchers working on similar languages (e.g. Finnish)
on the software tools they have used, on basic computational
infrastructure thay have devised (machine readable lexicon/corpora),
on the formal grammar modeling methodologies used etc.

Any comments, suggestions, pointers would be welcome.
Sincerely

Kemal Oflazer

Message 4: query on losing intuitions

Subject: query on losing intuitions

Has there been any research done on this phenomenon?
Does it have a name, by which I could do a library search
on it? Please send me mail if you can provide any info.
Thanks,
Joyce Tang (jtangcogsci.berkeley.edu)

Subject: Linguists and Amigas

If you are a linguist who uses or want to use an Amiga computer in your work,
please e-mail me. Tell me what you use and what you'd like to use. I'm
thinking of trying to port some of the popular linguistic tools to Our
Favorite Computer and I'd like to know what you use. It'll help me decide
what to do first.

Thanks!
