I am studying what I call *Christian Language*. It's really a
register that people speak in a church, or on a Sunday morning sermon
on the t.v. It's bleeding with metaphors and interpretations of the
Bible. I haven't been able to find any references to this register.
Any and all input will be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me.

Q: multilingual dictionnary


I would like to inventory the differents multilingual
dictionnary-thesaurus avaible on computer platforms (PC, Mac, UNIX)
which can translate lexicals items from French to English, Spanish,
German. Free or commercial products. I'm also interesting in the
softwares which can create this sort of dictionnary (data Base or
another system) I'm mostly interesting in your opinion about all this
products, if you use to work whith them. Are they easy to use, easy to
interface with others tools, easy to add new items ...

Thank you for your help

help on ''topic''

Dear Linguists,

I'm studying for my Ph.Thesis called ''Topic-Comment Articulation In
Turkish Verbal Texts''. I especially interested in ''discourse topic''
(or sentence topic from the view of texts). But, I haven't reached a
book that explains the whole discussion and history of works about
this subject yet. Would you please write me if you know some book(s)
or article(s) explaining the subject the way I need.

Thanks for your interest...
