Subject: Query: multiple regression.

Hello there.
I am currently attempting to learn something about quantitative
research in language studies and in particular I am looking at
multiple regression stats. as a way of analysing data...Does anyone
out there have any user friendly references on this subject or better
still, any expertise they'd like to share? Email me directly
(WilliamsC1Cardiff.AC.UK)...I will post summary if there's any
interest.
Thanks in advance....Cath.Cathryn Williams

Message 2: Patterns of Lexis

From: "Mr A.P. Berber Sardinha" <tony1liverpool.ac.uk>
Subject: Patterns of Lexis

Hello,

I'm interested in getting in touch with people who have been
using / are interested in the technique of analysis introduced
in Michael Hoey's 'Patterns of Lexis' (Oxford, OUP, 1991) for
assessing lexical cohesion in written text.

Cheers

Tony

Message 3: E-mail in Ghana?

Date: Mon, 27 Jun 94 17:53:58 +1E-mail in Ghana?
From: Knut Olawsky <olawskysapir.ling.uni-duesseldorf.de>
Subject: E-mail in Ghana?

I'll be leaving for a fieldtrip to Ghana in a few days. Does anybody know
whether there is the opportunity for E-mail-communication with some
linguists or other officials there, maybe at the University of Ghana
in Accra? It would be practical to contact somebody there.
My trip concerns a PhD-project dealing with DAGBANI, a Gur language spoken
in the area around Tamale, Northern Ghana. I would be glad if anyone could
give me additional information on the language or the area where it's
spoken (besides the info from the ETHNOLOGUE and Larry Hyman's article
about postlexical tonology). I am also looking for a native speaker of
Dagbani in Europe (the tribe name is DAGOMBA).
I will leave the linguist-list on Friday, 1 July, to avoid filling up my
mailbox.
Thanks in advance for your comments,
Knut Olawsky

Message 4: cute

From: Alison Moore <ammacdict.dict.mq.edu.au>
Subject: cute


Hello

A colleague who is not on the List has asked me to post a rather odd
query about the word 'cute'. He says that he has heard that it has been
defined in dictionaries as 'ugly, but interesting'.

Does anyone know of a dictionary with this definition of 'cute'? Has
anyone heard 'ugly, but interesting' as a kind of catchphrase in a
different context?

Thanks very much!
