Message 1: Order of conjuncts

Subject: Order of conjuncts

Can anybody give me recent references on the order of items in conjunctions
like "peanut butter and jelly" (?"jelly and peanut butter")? I have the
Cooper and Ross 1975 CLS Functionalism volume paper, but nothing more
recent than that. Please reply to me and I'll post a summary. Thanks.

Subject: Machine Translation Software

There's been a fair amount of information on this
subject in the past, but I think this is a new
request: I'm looking for MT s/w for PC's *which
can be networked*. I'm well aware of dongle protected
packages, but they're not what I'm after.

Any help greatly appreciated. Will summarise for the
net at a suitable date.

Message 3: Q: Old American English corpora

From: Joakim Nivre <joakimling.gu.se>
Subject: Q: Old American English corpora

Does anyone know of available machine readable corpora
of American English from the 18th and 19th century?
A student in my department wants to do a historical
study of the concepts 'freedom', 'liberty' and
'independence' in American English. Replies can be
sent directly to me. I'll post a summary if there
is any interest.

I would be grateful to anyone who can give me a print reference to the
exchange in the child language acquisition literature that includes the
expression "another one spoon" despite correction by a parent.
Thanks
