I'm trying to identify experts on multi-lingual character
representation and on SGML.  Although I have a short list,
I also have a only short time to gather this info, so I
thought I'd ask LINGUIST subscribers if you could help
me out.  This is in reference to identifying possible
consultants for a LINGUIST-related project.  But the
actual implementation of the project is a long way
off, so this isn't a call for volunteers, just a request
for names.  Current bibliography on these topics would
also be appreciated.
 
Please send replies to hdry at umich.edu
 
Many thanks for your help.

     I am posting this query on behalf of a colleague in the
Psychology Department, Dr David Townsend. If you can help him at
all, please email him at: townsend at saturn.montclair.edu.
 
     Thanks!

     I am interested in doing online sentence processing
experiments in other  languages, to see whether they show similar
effects to english: semantic  information interacts with
syntactic and lexical processing at the boundaries of syntactic
units.  Here are some materials I used to show this:
 
     Gerund Bias:
 
     If the pit crew works very efficiently, racing cars... If
the pilot is required to attend flight school, landing planes...
 
     Adjectival bias:
 
     If a young boy enjoys intense competition, racing cars... If
the airline's ground crew is on the runway, landing planes...
 
     I found that these biases make a difference in word naming
time for the word  after the ambiguous phrase only when the
target word signalled the gerund  structure, that is, when the
phrase has a verb-object structure, not when it has the modifier
head structure.
 
     Any luck on finding languages with this kind of ambiguity?

Subject:  Austric words
 
Hello,
 
I'm trying to find common words among the proposed Austric languages
(Austronesian and Austro-Asiatic) for the following words in English:
 
 
to acquire - to gain - to own - property - profit - possessions - to
hold - to support - to carry - to bear - law - tradition - justice
 
 
Also any words that you feel might belong to an Austric substratum
in Japanese, which has been studied recently for Austric relationships,
would also be appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance for any help.
 
Paul
