To Michael Caulfield:
 
James Jenkins and his students John Bransford and J. J. Franks did some
fascinating work at Minnesota in the 70's on the comprehension of metaphorical
language (and relevant work with visual imagery) using a Chomskian, rather than
behaviorist, approach.  Bransford pulled this material and a lot more into his
book, *Human Cognition:  Learning, Understanding and Remembering* (Belmont, CA:
Wadsworth, 1979).
 
I can give you a slew of citations, if you want to contact me privately.

Some people are wondering what kind of weather to expect in Albuquerque this
next week.  We had snow two weeks ago, the first since early December, but it
melted in 2 hours.  For the past week the highs have been 60 to 70 degrees,
lows at night range from 30 to 50 degrees.  It can be cold with wind, even when
it is sunny, so don't come without a sweater or a coat, but it can be very WARM
in the sun if there is no wind.  However, spring is our windy season.  For
people flying into the area, that makes for some bumpy flights.

I caught a glimpse of that mock trial several weeks ago, and thought it was
very entertaining. Both the prosecutor and defendant attorneys were eminent
(and smart) lawyers ( once white house legal counselors as I recall). Witnesses
include two psychiatrists. The arguments are all well prepared (one of the
lawyers said he actually had a paralegal work on the facts) and thus
enlightening (at least for me who know nothing in psychiatry) most of the time.
 
For those who seldom watch C-SPAN, this is probably one of the good reasons
these two channels should exist. :)
 
Enjoy,
Chin/Kansas, U. S.
