Subject: Australian corpora?

I'm looking for corpora (or word-frequency lists) of written Australian
English. I'd be grateful if anyone who either has such data or knows
where it might be found could get in touch with me by email (grosshmco.com).

thanks,

Subject: Re: 5.678 Qs: "Me First"


Could somebody please tell me (1) where Ross's "Me First" paper was
published, if it was in fact published, and (2) whether there is any
good recent work on the subject. The "me first" principle is supposed for
example to fix the order of items in phrases like "men and women", "here and
there", "to and fro", "friend or foe", etc.

Can anybody point me towards the editors of the Dutch magazine
'Electric Word', once known as 'Language Technology' or 'LT' ?

Many thanks!

Message 4: computer documentation standards

Date: Mon, 13 Jun 1994 11:45:16 computer documentation standards
From: William Eggington <EGGINGTWjkhbhrc.byu.edu>
Subject: computer documentation standards

I have been approached by some representatives of a computer
software company asking for assistance in developing computer
industry wide standards for on-line and manual documentation
language. Most computer companies label similar functions
differently. For example, do you "block," "click," "select" or "mark"
text before a "cut and paste" operation? They are interested in
lexical and syntactic areas of standardization. This appears to be an
interesting problem that may lend itself to language planning
applications. Is there anyone working on this elsewhere? Any
suggestions?

Cheers, Bill
