Subject: Spoken discourse data

Can anyone tell me where there might be an archive of high quality
*spoken discourse* data (and possibly transcripts) for use in teaching
about conversation analysis?

Subject: Future tense

I am working on future tense in different languages, specially
Slavic. There are languages where future has not specific forms. I
would like to have examples, with gloses and translation. Thnk you.

Message 3: Gesture in Communication

Subject: Gesture in Communication

I am investigating the interaction of spoken language and gesturing.
While I am working in a robotics domain, I need to get some
information on the notion of "appropriateness" of gesturing and the
effects of appropriate vs. inappropriate gesturing during spoken
language on communication and understanding. If someone could
directly respond to me with just a citation or two on this topic or on
a direction toward this topic, I'd be most grateful. Thank you in
advance.

Message 4: Pronominalization

Date: Fri, 24 Jan 1997 15:51:00 -800
From: Paul Kekai Manansala <sac51900saclink.csus.edu>
Subject: Pronominalization

Does anyone know of any examples of pronominalization
in Indo-Aryan languages other than Magahi and Maithili
languages? S.K. Chatterji gave this example from Bihar:

 maraliauk = "I have struck him for your benefit"
 (mar-al "struck" + -i- "I" + -au- "for you"
 + -k "him")

Also, I'm looking for examples of inclusive/exclusive pronouns
in Prakrit or NIA. Apologies for any duplication as I'm posting
this request on various forums. 

Thanks in advance,
Paul Kekai Manansala
