================================================================  

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear colleagues and/or readers of this message,

I am a research assistant at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, where I am
preparing my PhD on English and Spanish phraseology (multiword units) in
Foreign Language Teaching.
I am making headway with my research project, but I now need the help of
English or Spanish native speakers and/or EFL or SFL (ELE) teachers. I have
''built'' ''matched'' (in terms of speakers and topic) audio corpora in
both English and Spanish. For each language, the corpus currently consists
of one hour of audio material consisting of interview fragments on all
kinds of topics (taken mainly from BBC Radio 4, and BBCMundo and Cadena
Ser). I am looking for people to simply listen to the interviews and write
down every 'multiword unit' they hear along the way (I would of course
explain to you what I mean exactly by multiword unit). Any help would be
greatly appreciated.


Kind regards,

Helene Stengers

Subject: Language and Technology Questionnaire 

	

I am Terence Fitzgerald, a graduate student in Pratt Institute's School of
Information and Library Science.
 
My academic work focuses on human-computer interaction, particularly the
ways in which, as Marshall McLuhan wrote, "We shape our tools and
thereafter our tools shape us."  Currently, I am examining technology's
effects on people's relationship with language.  Specifically, I question
whether technology is transforming that relationship in ways never seen
before?or simply causing them to revert to existing behaviors.
 
As part of my work I have constructed a brief questionaire for
lexicographers and linguists.  The responses I compile will be used to
inform future projects.  If you are willing to answer the questionnaire,
please reply to me off list at tfitzger at pratt.edu.

Sincerely,
Terence
