Hi,

Does anyone know of any work done on the representation of French
uvular trill /R/ and/or Spanish trill 'rr' in a Feature Geometry
framework?  They could be written in either English, French, or
Spanish.  I'll post a summary of replies.

Thanks,

Jen Mah

Subject:  Corpus with Kind/Type information

I am interested in doing some machine learning work with nouns that
can be either kinds/types or instances.  For example: ''Dogs eat
meat.'' ''The dog is brown.''  In the first sentence, ''dogs'' is a
type noun.  In the second sentence ''dog'' is an instance.  I would
like to find some piece of text somewhere that has this distinction
annotated.  Does this exist?  Thank you for any information.
