Terminally ill cancer patients are automatically given this benefit for 3 years with no assessment and rightly so - therefore, I would like nonterminal cancer patients given the benefit for one year and then a review after this time - please any nonterminal cancer patient who has found themselves in this stressful situation get in touch (by email at c_moorcroft@yahoo.co.uk).
A given natural language L = ([SIGMA], [GAMMA], [S.sub.[SIGMA]]) can be specified in terms of (1) a finite alphabet [SIGMA] = ([s.sub.1], [s.sub.2], ..., [s.sub.n]) of uninterpreted terminal symbols [s.sub.i] that can be linearly combined to form written words and expressions and are often associated with sounds that can be spoken in the same order, along with any transitory nonterminal symbols; (2) a grammar or set of structural and transformational rules [GAMMA] which determine which strings or sequences of alphabetic symbols and words are "well-formed", i.e., which strings are potentially meaningful expressions of the language, and (3) the set [S.sub.[SIGMA]] of strings determined by [GAMMA].

Very closely related to the above is the problem with nonterminal bankruptcy, where a company reaches the bankruptcy state, and it does not go out of business but rather stays in this state a random amount of time and then resumes "business as usual." As in Sethi and Taksar [27], a diffusion limit description of such behavior would be via Brownian motion with delayed reflection at zero.
