Subject: Query: MultiLingual FRAMEWORK DBMS

Does anyone have experience with Ashton-Tate's "FRAMEWORK" data base
management system, which supposedly can be used with a wide variety of
languages including Greek and Hebrew, and can also mix and match
languages? I suppose that the languages are modern, and thus may not
have the diacritics, etc., that some of us ancients (or even middleaged)
might want, but still, does the system offer a useful platform for
certain types of multilingual computing (e.g. comparison of textual
versions, information on persons/places etc. from various sources, etc.)?

Subject: mac software for indexes, concordances, collocations, etc.

I am a novice in the Mac world. I think that there is somewhere
software for co ncordances, indexes, collocations, running on Macs, but
I don't know where and how find it. Could anyone help me?

Thank you.

Subject: Recalling data

On our obsolescent but much loved mainframe system emas there is an
excellent utility which I have never been able to replace on any dos
system. It is called RECALL. Anything but anything which has happened
on the keyboard or passed across the screen is saved in a huge buffer
somewhere. By issuing the command RECALL this buffer can be read and
extracts from it can be made. Thus for instance I can edit without
altering a literary text of 3 megabytes and print to screen all the
lines containing a particular feature I am interested in. I can let the
search rip and fill 22 screens with results. I don't need to make a
copy of the file and delete everything except the lines I am after. I
can then leave the orig original text intact and go into recall. I can
extract from recall my initial set of results or parts of that set of
results. I can if I wish repeat the process.

This system is very useful. The only thing on dos that I have ever seen
which claims to come near this merely records in a buffer the system
commands, it does _not_ record what goes on _within_ a programme
called from dos. Does anyone anywhere have a programme which does
what our old emas recall system does ? Before emas dies in 1992
I really would like an equivalent. I did once try using a shell
in unix to try to replicate something like recall and it was a pale
imitation, but I have never seen or heard of anything for dos which
can do a fraction of this.

A couple of months ago, Stephen Clausing (if I remember correctly)
asked for the source of the saying "Computers make/keep(?) linguists
honest". Could anyone possibly tell me whether the source has been
traced?

Regards,

Subject: Gender

Did I miss the discussion of social, philosophical, and metaphysical
implications of gender in those many languages that do not mark
morphologically grammatical gender? Or those that mark only two (and an
occasional implied third, as, eg., French with its use of 'ce' and
'en')? Or those that classify nouns into more than three categories.
