To all Vyakaran list members:
The Department of Linguistics at Lancaster University, UK is looking for a
native speaker of Urdu to work on a short paid consultancy. The task is manual
part-of-speech tagging of a subsection of an Urdu corpus and will not require
any travel.

As well as an intimate knowledge of Urdu, the analyst will need to have a
background in Linguistics or similar subject (probably to degree level or
more), with - in particular - a good knowledge of grammar, especially parts of
speech. A good working knowledge of English is also necessary. Prior
acquaintance with part-of-speech tagging is not required but would be a bonus.

I would be grateful if you could pass this information on to any Urdu speakers
(e.g. postgraduate students, researchers) in your institutions / departments
who might be interested in this consultancy. Anyone who is interested can
contact me at the email address below.
